If probation wasn't the apparent answer to nearly any criminal act in Allegheny County, he wouldn't have had access to the internet. He would have been in jail for prior offenses. Another "not a choir boy" who figured, and rightly so, that there are few consequences for bad behavior.

This problem is by no means unique to Dormont. We all need to make sure our computer connections are secured so predators like this can't use us as unwitting accomplices.
