CO - Mom Helps Police Arrest Unregistered Sex Offender
A super sleuthing mom in Colorado saved her daughter from a convicted sexual predator and helped police nab the creep.
The woman's daughter came to her about a guy she was chatting to on Myspace. The daughter was uncomfortable how the e-mails were going. The mother did some sleuthing and then checked the Sex Offender Registry and there was Andrew Coslett a 30 year old sex offender who failed to register. The mom went to police and they found the pervert. He violated State Law on quite a few counts including being on the internet of course.
When the lady showed her daughter his face on the Sex Offender Registry the girl started crying. Here's to this mom who has a good relationship with her child and took the time to see just what was going on. You go, mom.

It Gets Worse
This article tells more about this situation. This 12 year old girl knows Coslett's child. He did not try and disguise who he was or his age.
Coslett did have his residence registered, but not his online activities. Well, duh. Considering he was guilty of trying to meet with a 14 year old in 2000 I'd say this young lady did the right thing going to her mother. Imagine this creeps poor daughter.

The child and her Mom did the right thing, however, IMO she should have never allowed her 12 year old daughter to join myspace. The minimum age for myspace is 14 years old according to their regulations.

Trust me I don't envy anyone with young kids now. I know alot of parents do let their kids under 12 have a Myspace. It's tough as everybody else has one. I know, I know I'd like to be able to say "You just say no and who cares what everyone else is doing?" but easier said than done. Well, at least this girl is safe. How many others aren't though?
