    Miguel Luiz Lozoya said in the chat-log that his parents paid for everything he did. Well, one thing they didn't seem to want to pay for was bail, as Miguel has been in custody ever since his arrest. Lozoya showed up during our Dateline: Fort Myers sting and was, of course, promptly arrested. He made his intentions utterly clear in the chat and his asking for a plea agreement was, for him, a no-brainer.

    Lozoya has been sentenced to six months in jail, three years probation, and registration as a sex offender (and all the little goodies that entails). Because Luiz has been in jail the entire time, he will likely be released in a couple months back into his community. Hopefully people make his community aware of that.

    To get an idea of what Lozoya looks like now...

    Notes from the Contributor, Epiphany
    Luis spoke of rather mundane topics for the first hour before the conversation started to turn in the wrong directions. It turned slowly. While not graphic, his intentions were obviously the wrong ones considering the age of child he believed to be on the other side of the chat.

    He showed up at the house after only 2 days of chatting. In the chat he was worried about the cost of the three and a half hour drive. Thanks to the Florida LE we were working with, it cost him more than just the gas money. Less than four months later he plead guilty. I'm glad I had the chance to be part of the Florida project, this organization, and this conviction.

    This is our 73rd conviction since June of 2004 and our 33rd conviction for the year 2006 thus far. This is our second conviction thus far in Florida. As well, this being the 33rd conviction for the year equals our total for the entirity of 2005. We now have as many convictions so far this year that we had last year and in three and a half months less time. We are currently averaging slightly more than four convictions a month for 2006.
