    The pace is quickening. This marks our 18th conviction in 16 different states in the last 12 months. Additionally, this is our FOURTH conviction this month, and our SIXTH conviction in the last 31 days. As we said in June of 2004, our first conviction will make everything else speed up and become easier. June 2005 is a testament to that, with four convictions between June 1st and June 27th.

    This specific case is of Keith Parkison. He solicited a thirteen year old... we contacted the police, set-up the meeting and Keith was taken into custody. Today, Keith was sentenced to 42 months in confinement, a Bad Conduct discharge, reduction to grade E-1 and total forfeiture of all pay and allowances. This marks another successful case between ourselves and the various CID we have worked with around the nation. Their work ethic is to be commended. Notes from the contributor follow...

    Notes from Almond Joy
    I was in a Washington State chat room when Keith messaged "13 year old Violet". He got sexual very fast and sent a digital picture of his genitals. He admitted to being at work and using a Government computer to chat on from Fort Lewis, Washington. At that point I contacted one of our Criminal Investigative Division military contacts to see if they wanted to arrest Keith. Indeed, they were very interested in getting another bad guy off the streets. I worked with the CID contact to set up a meeting with Keith. He was so gung ho to meet a verification call was not needed. I had a verifier set up to call if one was needed. He showed up on time at the designated meeting place and was met with CID officers, not a 13 year old like he expected. In interrogation he admitted to having the chat with "Violet" and going to meet her for sex. Keith spent that weekend in the brig. He will be spending a lot more time in the brig now.

    The log is now posted for everyone to read. We sincerely hope Keith enjoys his forty-two months of confinement and spends a long time thinking about exactly why he's there. Thanks to our contact and the prosecutors on the case for being the very definition of responsive and pro-active.
