    That makes the distribution of child pornography acceptable, after all, if the victim gets copies to keep for herself.

    Raymond Deba is just another example of what we here at Perverted Justice talk about - internet predators are often extremely dangerous, obsessive and serial criminals. Deba is just another example of a registered sex offender who, despite previous convictions and experience with the law, continues to surf the internet, looking for victims. He clearly had much experience attempting to solicit minors, as he was willing to spend months trying to groom our decoy, biding his time for the right opportunity to victimize her.

    Thankfully he will not have the same opportunity to do so anytime soon as the state of Texas has given him one of the longest sentences in the history of our site. Deba was convicted of two different charges, receiving sentences of 20 and 35 years. We here at Perverted Justice salute Texas for this serious approach to tackling the problem of internet predators.

    Contributor notes from Irish Rose
    Raymond Deba was already a Registered Sex Offender in the state of Texas when he contacted my 14 year old persona. He was also still on probation after release from prison after a prior conviction for "Online Solicit Minor To Meet w/int Sexual Contact" among other charges. But once again, we have an example showing that this obsession is not one that can be cured by some prison time. Ray worked very hard for over two and a half months to groom who he thought was a 14 year old girl, and tried to coax her to meet him constantly. It took him some time to work up to his true intentions to have sex, which is frightening, when you think that a vulnerable lonely child might have been convinced to meet with his promises of trips to amusement parks and of gifts he would buy her. After he made his intentions for sex clear, he proceeded to attempt to educate my persona on the various techniques he wanted to perform with her.

    Perhaps the most disturbing part of this chat was when he said he was going to buy the "morning after pill" for this 14 year old girl, and then instructed her on the proper way to take it. This shows he had no intention of using birth control, and selfishly had no concern for what this pill and his own actions might physically do to a child. He was just trying to destroy evidence that might have gotten him into trouble.

    When my 14 year old persona finally gave in to his persistent requests to meet, it was law enforcement and not a real child waiting for him in a park in Goliad Texas. He pled out in District Court to 20 years for Online Solicitation of a Minor and 35 years for Online Solicitation of a Minor with Intent to Commit a Sexual Act. He also faced charges for Violation of Sex Offender Registration in Travis County. Chief Deputy Bill Schaefer is dedicated to protecting the children of Texas, and has my extreme gratitude for his professionalism and commitment. He and his department were a pleasure to work with. Red Wagon did a fantastic job as phone verifier on this case and has my respect as always for her dedication.


    This is our 323rd conviction since June of 2004, our 20th conviction for 2009, and our 10th conviction in Texas thus far.
