    WI - Mom nabs sex offender

    Many thanks to this outstanding mother!!

    Mom's snooping helped officials in sex case

    West Bend man faces felony charges after she learned he contacted her son

    Investigators tried for more than two years to build a case against a prominent West Bend businessman they suspected was seeking out boys for sex but could not produce solid evidence.

    That was until a self-described nosy mother in Colorado began snooping in her 13-year-old son's bedroom. Suspicious of a note she found, she began peering into his e-mails and uncovered a troubling message from someone calling himself "Badgervirgo" that led her to troll the Internet for hours in an effort to trace his identity.

    Her digging proved to be a break in the case that led to Curtis J. Schmidt, 67, of West Bend being charged this week with 20 counts of possessing child pornography, soliciting sex online from a 13-year-old boy and distributing a videotape of a child engaging in sexual activity.

    I agree 100% that parents have not only the right, but the duty to investigate their children's activities. I tell my children that they have absolutely no reasonable expectation of privacy in my home. They're not allowed to "chat" on the computer, but if they're playing games, talking on the telephone or visiting with friends if I can't watch, read and/or hear what's going on, it ain't happening.

    I agree Jeana I tell mine the same.

    I do let mine use AIM but only with users who are real life friends.
