In November 2015, while we were working an area in rural New York for the purposes of getting some arrests, Edward hit up one of our decoys using the screenname "a Great Guy." For the next few weeks, he slowly worked at befriending our 13 year old decoy, before moving on to talk of a sexual nature.However, due to the distance and Edward's paranoia, he was unwilling to make the trip over to New York.This meant our contact there was unable to arrest him, due to Edward living in Massachusetts.During the conversation, Rozmiarek made no attempt to hide his profession, openly and honestly talking about his job as a principal.The DA in Massachusetts has declined to prosecute, citing that Massachusetts law requires active enticement to Massachusetts, which the log doesn't have.Because we couldn't get him to cross into New York, he couldn't be arrested.There is little uniformity across the country in regards to this issue, from what constitutes an offense to the amount of time someone will serve.Hopefully in the future Massachusetts will strengthen their laws and make it so the act of conversing sexually with a minor is prosecuted in a manner consistent with most of the rest of the country.
As the article notes, there are other arrests out there which simply aren't covered by media outlets.We've been working hard behind the scenes, still hitting the rooms and working with police. For those of you who only know us from "To Catch a Predator", we were working hard before TCAP and we're working hard after TCAP.To illustrate that, this isn't just a note about our 600th conviction, but rather that we're shooting beyond 600 with two convictions scheduled to be posted each week until mid-June. We've been getting convictions now since our first... If you'd like to help us push towards 700, swing by our forums and say hello on our discord. In hindsight, Sophie explained she was 'naive' when she initially shot the scenes as sexual assault hadn't affected her or anyone she knew. ''In season 5, Sansa was brutally raped by her husband in scenes so shocking it caused a huge outcry.
