    There have been few odder names that have hit on our profiles than \"flamningdonkeybutt.\" Michael Chan did not have any the same light-hearted intent when talking to our decoy that he had when he created his account. Chan conducted a sexual and totally abhorrent chat with what he thought was a thirteen year old female. He was so callous that he suggested the female hitchhike to come have sex with him. Truly a man who simply did not give any care to the safety of a potentially very underage minor.

    Notes from the Contributor, E.L. Fudge
    The conviction of Michael Chan has been something I have been waiting for, for a long time. I busted this guy right after I was brought on as a contributor. After initally getting lack of Law Enforcement interest, I finally secured the interest of the Rohnert Park police department in northern California. I filed a report and less than 12 hours later had a detectives interest. The detective and myself worked on setting up a meet 24 hours from the time we got in touch with each other.

    Michael Chan showed up at the designated meeting spot slightly earlier than planned where he was apprehended by Law Enforcement.

    He was charged with attempted distribution of pornographic materials to a minor and attempted child molestation. He was arrested and charged April 1, 2005. Throughout this process, Michael did not want to plead to any charge that would get him a lifetime registration to the sexual offender registration board. We were set to go to jury trial December 19th. He held out until December 16, 2005, when he finally pled guilty to attempted distribution of pornographic materials to a minor, which comes with a lifetime sex offender registration, possible jail time, possible court-mandated counseling, and possible probation. We'll know the details on that when he gets sentenced in the upcoming months.

    I would like to thank the City of Rohnert Park in California for being proactive in bringing Michael Chan to justice. It was a pleasure working with them. I'd also like to thank my verifier, Punkie. She had to talk to Chan a couple times and really pulled through for me.

    This is our Thirty second conviction for the calendar year of 2005, our fourth overall conviction in the great state of California, and our 39th conviction since June of 2004. This is E.L. Fudge's second conviction since becoming a Perverted-Justice.com contributor. We thank her and the Rohnert Park detectives who jumped on this case. Great work to all involved and hopefully Chan gets himself an appropriate sentence in light of his perverted callousness.
