U.S. rapist used Facebook to meet young victims: police
"A New York man described by police as a sexual predator who used Facebook to meet his victims pleaded guilty Wednesday to raping four underage girls.
David Bradt, 24, of Colonie, in northern New York state, who faces 12 years in prison, used the popular social networking site to try to lure hundreds of girls into encounters, police said.
