    This is, of course, within the first 5-10 minutes of the chat.

    Spencer Cho was arrested as part of the sting in Riverside, California in January 2006. Over 50 predators arrived for that sting, as featured on Dateline NBC. Yes, it was nearly 5 years ago, yet his case has only recently concluded. Cho was found guilty by a jury of a charge of attempted lewd act with a child under 14 in the summer of 2009, but he followed that conviction up with an appeal. Unsurprisingly, the jury's decision was upheld.

    He was sentenced to three years probation with a long list of restrictions, 180 days in county jail (to be served on weekends), must pay significant fines and restitutions, and he is registered as a sex offender under California's Megan's Law.

    Contributor notes from Molly McButter
    Spencer was a fast mover. Even Spencer's paranoia didn't stop him from trying to meet a young girl for sex. The same evening that he hit me up in a Yahoo chat room, he drove out to meet me. Luckily, he met with Riverside police instead. It's taken nearly five years to get this conviction, with him appealing and losing. Thank you so much to the Riverside Sheriff's Department for helping us to get one more predator out of the chat rooms.

    This is our 518th conviction since June of 2004 and our 18th conviction for 2010.
