    It's hard to show intent to commit a crime more clearly than that.

    And unfortunately for David Wayne Forsyth, his case was picked up federally. He pled guilty to enticement of a child to engage in illegal sexual conduct, though pleading out didn't gain him a soft sentence by any means. He received 10 years in federal prison, followed by lifetime supervision/probation with the usual conditions imposed. He also must pay a $10,000 fine. We don't think he'll be trying to rape a child again, thanks to the great work of the DOJ and US Attorney George Holding.

    Contributor notes from Irish Rose
    David Wayne Forsyth is one of the most persistent predators that chatted with my decoy personas. I lost track of how many times he asked to meet. It seemed he was constantly pushing my 14 year old persona to meet with him somehow, including wanting her to sneak out of the house in the middle of the night, which is a very scary thought. He made his intentions for sex very clear, including sending porn pictures to who he thought was a child to demonstrate what he wanted to do to her. Throughout this chat Forsyth used classic grooming techniques, including flattery, making the child feel special, and talking about buying her gifts. He also knew this was very wrong, shown by his concerns about getting into trouble and going to jail. I'm sure the photo of my decoy persona that he hung up in his office at work was interesting to his employer when it became part of the evidence upon his arrest.

    Forsyth did eventually show up to meet who he believed was a child as he so desperately wanted, but it was law enforcement waiting for him. Because he had been chatting from both home and work, both the Johnston County NC Sheriff's Office and the Greensboro Police Department were involved in the investigation. For the meet on this case, law enforcement requested to take over my decoy persona, and it is our policy to always cooperate. It was a pleasure working with these dedicated officers. The case was then prosecuted in Federal court after child porn was found on his computer. United States Attorney George E.B Holding of the DOJ had these comments regarding the investigation:

    "I want to commend the cooperative efforts of the citizen organization, Perverted Justice, who have worked closely with law enforcement in this case. All of us have an obligation to protect our children from these predators. Only through constant vigilance and cooperation can we obtain justice for these children."

    We thank Attorney Holding for his words and for his dedication to protecting the children under his care. I agree very strongly with his opinion, that we all have an obligation to protect our children, which is why I do what I do.

    Forsyth pled guilty in Federal court to Enticement and was sentenced to 120 months in prison followed by a lifetime of supervision and subject to special conditions.

    Bigfoot has my gratitude for her fine work as the verifier on this case.

    This is our 382nd conviction since June of 2004, our 78th conviction for 2009, and our 3rd conviction in North Carolina thus far.
