    Kent Grant: Honey, you could be my granddaughter I am 50. Now I have had the company of a girl your age many years ago and risked a lot doing it. But these days people would not look good at us chatting.

    It's quite doubtful that people would ever \"look good\" at you soliciting a 14-year-old child for sex. Admitting that you've done it in the past, without consequence, just proves yet again that you can not cure a child sexual predator.

    Kent Douglas Grant was not 50 when he solicited retired Contributor Pepper Jack's decoy; he was actually 55. It didn't take him long; just one evening of email exchanges and he was on the road to pick up a child and take her home to spend the night \"being intimate\" with him. Grant was careful with his words, trying to only allude to what he wanted. It wasn't enough to save him from the inevitable.

    Grant showed up to pick Brandy up at her home, but was instead met by officers from the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department. Grant was convicted of going to an arranged meeting with minor with intent to commit a specified sex offense, and is now a registered sex offender.

    This is our 617th conviction since June of 2004.
