    Thumbs up Internet Chat Room Arrests

    More offenders off the streets...

    "EBENSBURG, Pa. - A police officer, a college administrator and three other men were arrested for sexual misconduct with a teenage boy.
    The arrests were part of an ongoing investigation of men who meet boys through Internet chat rooms, authorities said Tuesday."

    *Snip*

    "The men, all from Johnstown, are: William Gillin, 53; Paul Skiles, 63; David Walylko, 42; Jeffrey Haire, 40; and William Benjamin Leckey, 39.

    Gillin, Skiles and Walylko were each charged with two counts each of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, corrupting the morals of a minor, and unlawful contact with a minor.

    Haire was charged with two counts of corrupting the morals of a minor and Leckey was charged with three counts of corrupting the morals of a minor, two counts of unlawful contact with a minor and one count of aggravated indecent assault."

    *Snip*

    Haire is a part-time officer at the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown and a security guard at Johnstown Memorial Medical Center. Gillin is manager of the school's alumni relations. Officials with the school and medical center said both men were suspended."

    News this morning said this investigation started with Leckey accused of molesting his step-son and it led to another teen being solicited and all these men.

    Bless those boys for having the guts to stand up for themselves.

    This is sick! I'm glad they were caught though.

    "More people have come forward with information following the arrests of five local men charged with soliciting sex from a minor over the Internet.

    Sgt. Mike Burgan of the Richland Police Department said, since Channel 6 News aired this story, they've been receiving tips from local people concerning the investigation.

    Burgan won't say if the callers are giving tips on the five men arrested, or if they're giving information on possible new victims."

    *Snip*

    "Burgan said investigators have a large amount of evidence to pour through, starting with the computers of all five men arrested.
    All of the investigators Channel 6 has spoken to guarantee more arrests will come in this case, but Burgan said there is no timeframe on when those arrests will happen."
