    No we want you to come over and have a jail term lol

    So, what can you do in 28 minutes? Anthony Sorrentino here can meet an underage male teen, have a quick sexual conversation, get an address and arrive. Yes, in a little less than 28 minutes, Sorrentino went from saying hi to our decoy to saying hi to Chris Hansen. That has to be a speed record for a predator. Hell, he did that in half the time it takes to watch a "To catch a predator" episode to begin with.

    For his time-not-well-spent, Sorrentino received 17 months in prison followed by eight years sex offender probation. He will also register as a sex offender in Florida. Now that's the kind of sentence we like, nice work Florida!

    Contributor notes from Don Pedro
    We sometimes talk about the different types of guys we encounter while combating these online predators - the groomer, the fast mover, etc. Italianlover37, a.k.a. Anthony Sorrentino, is the definition of the fast mover. It took him all of 18 minutes to decide to hop in his car, drive about 10 minutes, and molest a young boy.

    Usually with fast movers, we will have some time to prepare everything while the predator drives towards the house - we had no such luxury with Anthony. It seriously took less than an hour from the time he contacted me to the time he was in handcuffs - and that includes the time he was being interviewed by Chris Hansen. The thought that a young kid's life could be forever harmed in that short window of time...well, that's why combating online predators is such an important job.

    Anthony Sorrentino is also a guy who both infuriates me and scares the hell out of me at the same time. By reading the brief chat log, you can tell that Anthony knows that he is doing something wrong. His compulsion to prey on a young kid was too much in the end. Thankfully he got what he deserved - a decent jail sentence and sex offender registration.

    Thanks must go out to the Flagler Beach PD. They take the problem of predators like Anthony Sorrentino seriously and the people of Flagler Beach should be proud of their officers. Also, the State Attorney's office of Flagler County and ASA Jennifer Carlson deserve much praise as well. Their hard work insures that these predators receive their just punishments.


    This is our 261st conviction since June of 2004 and our 140th conviction for 2007 so far.
