    Report made 6/16/2005 8:25 AM PST

    Today marks our 17th conviction in the last 12 months, our 5th conviction in the last 20 days and our first conviction in Cincinnati, Ohio. Duane Scott Brown was a teacher in Cincinnati when he propositioned what he thought was a young male played by the erstwhile Jay Alternative. Brown got sexual, Brown got busted.

    After positively identifying Brown, Jay made contact with his employer. Who made contact with local police, who referred the matter to Detective Rick Sweeney. Sweeney got a search warrant for Brown's computer where evidence of child pornography was found. Readers familiar with the website have probably already heard the name Rick Sweeney. His task force has had a 100% conviction ratio and this case continues that trend. It also continues our perfect record in court-rooms.

    Notes from Jay Alternative
    D. Scott Brown, a social studies teacher in the Oakhills School District in south/west Ohio, imitated an AOL instant messaging session with my 14 year old male character on 12-31-04. Amongst many things which transpired during our almost week long contact, the most disturbing was his willingness to pay my characters mother the sum of $1000.00 to sign custody over to him for pure sexual purposes.

    01-02-05 I attempted contact with the Ohio State Police, Lima Ohio Police, and Cincinnati Police. Scott is based in Cincinnati and my character was based in Lima. Due to the complexity of this case, I had no choice to take the next step once we positively identified Brown. I contacted the CEO of the district where Brown taught, Dr. Robin White.

    My contact to Dr. White:

    Dr. White:

    Thank you for taking the time to address my email. I am known as Jay Alternative, contributor for the child advocacy web site www.perverted-justice.com

    My reason for contacting you today is a very serious situation. While positioned in a chat room as my 14 year old character, I was solicited by a middle aged man. Through further conversation, both in instant messages, and telephone contact, we have made positive identification that he is on staff at a Great Oaks facility.

    One week ago I contacted your local law enforcement via email asking for their assistance. To date, I have received no response. My contact with you today is in hope that your position and status in the community can request police interception.

    Please forgive my ambiguity of identifying this individual. One thing we do not want to do is alarm this man in anyway thus allowing him to destroy evidence.

    I am hoping I can count on your assistance in pursuing this matter. If you have a preferred method of contact please advise.


    Within an hour, I received this via email:

    My name is Aaron Blasky and I am a detective with the City of Sharonville Police Department. I have been contacted by the school employee that this e-mail was sent to. I am very concerned about this information. Please contact me A.S.A.P.

    My immediate contact followed.

    Upon my contact with Detective Blasky, he forwarded the case to Detective Rick Sweeney with the special investigation unit in Cincinnati.

    My contact with Detective Sweeney:

    Thanks Jay- at this point we will be going to Grand Jury for an indictment on the 18th but till them there really isn't much else I can tell you. If you need to post I can't ask you not to - at this point we are not seeking an indictment relating to your chats so I don't see the harm of doing so. If you want to feel free- the media is NOT at this point in time aware of PJ's involvement on any level

    Thanks Again,

    However, Judge Cooper requested PJ's involvement.

    Link to online court documentation involving this case. The first subpeona on 4/15 requests the presence of Sweeney to inquire about the nature of our website.

    The follow up staff of Perverted-Justice.com gave the police, and the prosecuting attorney detailed information which lead to D. Scott Browns conviction and safeguard from our children.

    To summarize, my gratitude to the following:

    1. pj_g0dd_s, my right and person who conducted the phone portion of this bust.
    2. Dr. Robin White, put the spark under LE to protect the children at her school.
    3. Detective Blasky, whose quick response got Detective Sweeney on the case.
    4. Detective Sweeney for taking the case and using our information as a basis of the search that found far more serious charges against Brown than solicitation.
    5. The Cincinnati DA's office for prosecuting Brown.

    It's a good thing.......one down, many more to go.

    Bless you all,

    Duane Scott Brown was sentenced today to a 180 days in jail, five years of what is commonly known as probation, the surrendering of his teachers license and sex offender treatment. While the chat-log was not used as evidence against him, saving the government the expenditure of bringing Jay in for testimony, our chat-log with Brown directly led to the search warrant against him, which is what netted the additional charges.

    Brown's conviction marks our second conviction in the state of Ohio. The first conviction, Benjamin Brown of Trenton, is of no relation. Thanks to everyone involved in responding to our information quickly and to the court system for dealing with Duane Scott Brown in a quick and speedy manner.
