    kenneth_forton (9:22:56 PM): damn gotta be so diffucult

    Yeah, it's always difficult when the fifteen year old won't let you ruin her nylons.

    Forton would eventually show up with his oh-so-important industrial strength rope and a few other \"choice\" items. The bald-headed goof then got to deal with Chris Hansen as this was the Dateline: Fort Myers sting. Kenneth Forton was sentenced to nine months in prison, three years probation, registration as a sexual offender and all the usual restrictions that carries.

    Ken will have a nice spell to think about why it's a bad idea to solicit a fifteen year old sexually.

    Notes from the Contributor, Xavier Von Erck
    Yay, my convictions are starting to come in. Florida was the second sting I had ever worked in the role of a contributor and it was much more natural after having done Ohio the month prior. About five minutes into the conversation with Forton, I knew he was going to show up. With some guys, you can just tell. His complete lack of paranoia along with his creepy fetishes were good indicators that he would be making the trip.

    The police chief in Fort Myers said this predator disturbed him the most due to the fact that he brought rope and other restraining devices, I have to say that between he and Donald Morrison, another predator that arrived in Florida for me, I have to agree that both are equally as disturbing. Forton just didn't give a damn about what he was going to do, a complete and utter lack of caring.

    Thanks to the Fort Myers police for inviting our organization into the area in order to conduct this sting and all the associated law enforcement that aided Fort Myers in completing this sting, especially the Florida Department of Law Enforcement who ended up being a big help.

    This is our 110th conviction since June of 2004 and our 70th conviction for the year 2006 thus far.
