    Tory W. Beltz didn't think it was bad at the time for a 28-year-old man to solicit a 14-year-old female for sex. It took him less than a week of conversation to make the decision to cross state lines, from Illinois to Indiana, to meet Tootsie Roll's 14-year-old decoy for sex. Instead of being met by a child, Beltz was met by officers from the Petersburg, IN Police Department.

    Beltz was arrested and charged with child solicitation. After numerous delays by his private attorney, Beltz finally made the decision to plead guilty. He was sentenced to time served of 12 days, fined, and had to register as a sex offender.

    Beltz got home to Illinois and registered as required. Illinois took a look at his conviction and decided to classify Beltz as a \"Sexual Predator.\" That means that instead of having to register for ten years like many of those convicted in Petersburg, he will have to register as a sexual predator for the rest of his life.

    Yeah, Tory, it would be bad.

    This is our 607th conviction since June of 2004.
