    Unfortunately, Richard, what you're describing isn't "gay", it's pedophilia.

    Richard Springmeier has one damn disgusting photo on our posted chat-log. Fortunately, his sentence isn't disgusting at all. Springmeier arrived at one of our Kentucky law enforcement-only sting operations. He showed up thinking he would have sex with a thirteen year old boy. They don't appreciate that sort of thinking over in Kentucky, let us tell you.

    Springmeier gets to rock out with three years and ten months in prison followed by two years of supervised release. He will also be a registered sex offender for life which means he'll be having fun with Kentucky's stringent RSO restrictions.

    Contributor notes from Don Pedro
    Rick here is a special type of dangerous. In his chat with me, he exhibited classic predatory behavior. He also described to me the things he likes doing (swimming, rollercoasters) and places he likes to frequent (waterparks, themeparks). These are all geared towards a younger crowd - definately not a place for a single 48-year-old man to be hanging out at. That fact, added to the grooming of my 13-year-old persona, makes Rick a very dangerous individual.

    Rick also left no doubt whatsoever as to what his intentions were once he and the young boy got together. He even admitted in the chat that he knew what he was doing was illegal. The only smart thing Rick did was pleading guilty to his crimes.

    I would like to thank the wonderful law enforcement of the state of Kentucky. Their hard work in combatting online predators cannot be understated.


    This is our 243rd conviction since June of 2004 and our 122nd conviction for 2007 so far.
