MySpace Contact Leads To Arrest


New Jersey--A ROTC instructor at the University of Tennessee at Martin has been arrested after allegedly contacting a 14-year-old family acquaintance over MySpace and sending her obscene pictures of himself.

Joseph Allen Spellings, of Trenton, has been charged with transferring obscene images to a minor as well as coercion and enticement.

Investigators say Spellings also used an an e-mail account to ask her if she could send sexually related pictures to him.

After becoming aware of the problem via a concerned parent, an agent with the FBI posed as the girl on MySpace and subsequently began a conversation with Spellings.

The 29-year-old reportedly discussed having anal & oral sex with the girl and planned on picking her up at a park nearby because his wife would be away at that time.

UPDATE: Sentenced to 18 months
