    Correct! Ladies and gentlemen, tell him what he's won... a conviction!

    Billy Wayne Rife was convicted of soliciting a minor in Kentucky, and was sentenced to five years probation. Reading the chat, you wish he would have gotten more, but at least this is hanging over his head. Will it be enough that he sticks to the right side of life? We hope so, but if not... well, we have plenty of decoys out there in chat-rooms across the nation.

    Contributor notes from Irish Rose
    For days, Billy Wayne Rife was oh so sweet while chatting with who he thought was a 13 year old girl. He called her princess and told her how sweet and beautiful she is. He flattered her and sweet talked her, speaking of romance and candle-light dinners. Then, in classic groomer style, he started working in kissing and moved on to making love. I always think it is the most reprehensible form of manipulation when a predator preys on the emotions of a vulnerable young girl, convincing her that he is in love with her and that she is in love with him. This is how this man worked.

    It took many days for this man to show his true intentions, while he watched carefully to be sure he was not scaring the "child" whom he had worked so hard to convince of his "love". His objectives became obvious when his chat turned extremely sexually graphic as he described his wants and plans. It was clear that he believed he was talking to a virgin child, as he explained the details of sex and educated her on what he was expecting and what it would be like. He exposed himself on cam several times and sent porn movies to the "child". Although he repeatedly explained that meeting her would be rape, and illegal and how much trouble he would be in, this did not stop him from stating his intentions to meet her over and over, followed up by actually traveling to meet at a park.

    Parents, please take this chat as another serious warning of the manipulative skill of predators that can deceive an innocent child into believing they are chatting with a trustworthy person. This shows that even when a child shows disinterest it will not slow their pursuit.

    Officers from the Lawrenceburg, Kentucky Police Department were waiting for Billy when he arrived at the park instead of a real child. I can not say enough about their professionalism in preparing the meet and this case, and it was a pleasure working with Detective Joe Saunier and his associates. Lawrenceburg should be very grateful to have a pro-active police department that takes the safety of their children so seriously. Billy Wayne Rife entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to five years probated for attempted unlawful transaction with a minor.


    This is our 314th conviction since June of 2004 and our 11th conviction for 2009 thus far.
