    How long does it take you to commit a felony worth prosecuting? Less than one single hour. That's how long Derek Coaxum was in a chat with Perverted-Justice.com contributor Frag in April of 2004. Just one hour and one webcam session garnered Derek Coaxum a not-so-friendly visit from federal law enforcement.

    Please read the following "Contributor Notes" from Frag carefully. They are definitely eye-opening when it comes to how serious a crime it is to expose yourself to a PeeJ contributor in a chat-room.

    Notes from the Contributor, Frag:
    Well it's been a long time coming but justice finally caught up with Derek. It's been 15 months since I had the chat with Derek, in which he not only offered to get me ready for his big dick by asking me to insert objects in myself, but also chose to expose himself to me on live webcam.

    It wasn't too long after Derek was posted that I received an email from a Secret Service agent in Charleston South Carolina that was very interested in the chat and even more interested in the pictures I had of Derek exposing himself. The agent asked that I send him everything I had, and told me once he'd had a chance to evaluate everything, he'd get back to me.

    A week or so later I was once again contacted by the Secret Service agent requesting that I resend all of the evidence to an F.B.I. agent at the Charleston South Carolina office who would be assisting on the case. I was also informed at that time that the Secret Service and F.B.I. would jointly arresting Derek that day, at the school where he worked at.

    A month or so later I was once again contacted by the Secret Service asking me if I would be willing to testify for the prosecution, saying that without PeeJ's cooperation the AUSA wouldn't take the case. I of course told him that we'd be more than happy to help in any way possible, and to move forward knowing he had our full cooperation.

    But in the end it wasn't my testimony, or anyone else's that was Derek's undoing. Heck, there wasn't even a trial. The two screen captures I took of Derek exposing himself to someone he thought was a minor, were more than enough evidence to force Derek to plea to a felony in federal court.

    Another open-and-shut case. This marks another federal conviction and our first conviction in South Carolina. That brings the total of states our work has created convictions in to 18. This marks our 22nd conviction since June of 2004 and our 15th conviction since January 1st, 2005. This is also our second conviction for July 2005 thus far. The Coaxum conviction marks the third conviction for Frag in the last ten months.

    Because we're so proud of it, here is our current "Conviction Map" of states that we have obtained convictions in. Red states note one conviction, blue states note two.

    Finally, we would like to thank the Secret Service, the FBI and the AUSA for acting upon this to garner a conviction in this by-the-books manner. Total professionals on this case, through and through.
