Man Gets 24 Years in Prison for Posing as Dying Boy to Sexually Coerce Girls
A 31-year-old man was sentenced Monday to more than 24 years in federal prison for posing online as a teenage boy dying of leukemia in an effort to coerce young girls into sending him sexually explicit images......
Joshua Kistler chatted regularly with at least nine girls nationwide who ranged in age from 12 to 14. He used the condition to gain the girls' sympathy, according to the U.S. Department of Justice....
According to the Justice Department, Kistler told the victim that he had cut off contact with another girl because of the Utah girl's jealousy and that the other girl had killed herself. Overcome with guilt, the Utah girl attempted suicide, and law enforcers became involved.
The girl attempted suicide a second time after the mother tried to stop the relationship.....
I'm sorry for the harm I've caused," he said. "I wasn't aware I was causing any harm."Kistler told agents that he knew what he was doing was wrong and that he had always "been a collector."

Where is J. Edgar Hoover when you need him? We need to make the laws clear and simple and then properly enforce them. Though I am not in the "morally right" party, one has to see this is stooping to a new low. Trust in your fellow man is quickly being eroded away in this country.
