    Phillip Wyman Knowlan wanted to make sure the 14-year-old child knew that they'd be meeting only for sex, not for any real kind of relationship. What a nice guy.

    Knowlan was arrested as part of our work with the Michigan Attorney General's Office. He was charged with four counts of accosting, enticing or soliciting a child for immoral purposes (a 4 year felony), and two counts of using the Internet to accost a child for immoral purposes (a ten year felony).

    As part of a plea agreement, Knowlan took a guilty plea to one count of accosting, enticing, or soliciting a child for immoral purposes, and the rest of the counts were dropped. He was sentenced to six months in jail, probation for five years, and he must register as a Tier II sex offender for 25 years.

    This is our 572nd conviction since June of 2004.
