    13 year old girl (05/24/08 10:06:36 PM): wow
    Yeah, wow, I wonder where this conversation is heading. I can't possibly imagine.

    James Eugene Young gave workers at a Marshall, Michigan McDonalds a surprise as police arrested him as he placed an order, intending to meet a 13 year old at the same location. He did this on a Father's Day, after leaving his wife and kids at home. He was charged with enticing a child for immoral purposes and using a computer to commit a crime. and he received a sentence of one year in the county jail and is a registered sex offender for life.

    Contributor notes from Ripley
    Jim Young spent the morning of Fathers Day 2008 going to church with his wife and three young children, before celebrating Fathers day with them and leaving to come to Marshall, Michigan to meet a 13 year old girl. Unfortunately for him he ended up meeting the Marshall, Michigan Police department.

    He drove all the way back from Iowa when it was flooding badly. He had just landed a new job there and had planned on moving his family there in a few weeks.

    Jim was very scared that my persona was a cop. He mentions it frequently in the chat, but once again his desire to molest a child outweighed his fears. I always find it almost unbelieveable how deeply these men are driven and how much they will risk in order to fulfill their desires.

    Jim was quite a groomer. He tried to come off as being so polite and innocent, but he was only feeling things out and trying to his best to get a meet with a child. I am so glad he ran into a Peej contributor instead of a real child.

    He will spend one year in the county jail and had to register as a sex offender. I hope he learned his lesson, but somehow I doubt it.

    I would like to say a special thanks to Wes Cuatt. He worked hard on this case and did a great job.

    This is our 381st conviction since June of 2004, our 77th conviction for 2009, and our 35th conviction in Michigan thus far.
