    g_balthareddy (04/02/08 11:00:58 PM): yes. i will serve u in ur mouth
    If by "serve u in ur mouth" you mean "get arrested and kicked out of the country", then yeah, probably.

    Baltha Reddy Gopu was arrested in one of our Information First locations and quickly convicted. His chat was long, involved and as always, quite disturbing. Because of his immigration status, Gopu was sentenced to three years felony probation, which is mostly meaningless because he's going to be deported.

    All of the work to go through immigration and be lucky enough to stay here, and a person goes and tries to molest a kid he meets online. Crazy.

    Contributor notes from La Victoria
    I was brand new at chatting when I met Baltha. I couldn't believe how fast this guy was to meet nor could I get over how condescending he was to what he believed to be a 13 year old girl.

    This bust will be one I will always remember as it was my first one. I wish Baltha's sentence had been much stronger, forty days isn't nearly enough. However him being deported back to his home country of India made me happy.

    I would like to take a minute to thank so many people who helped me with this. First my trainers, especially Max, who had faith in me to be able to do this. I would love to also thank AmethystCats for not only verifying this guy but for talking to him for quite a while trying to get him to find the house. My JC group for being there for me, when I needed it most.

    I would also like to thank Detective Scott and the Chowchilla Police Department. I had the pleasure of meeting Detective Scott and many of his colleagues and their devotion to putting these people away is wonderful.


    This is our 303rd conviction since June of 2004 and our 42nd conviction for 2008 thus far.
