Man, 30, Accused of Raping 11-Year-Old Girl He Met on Facebook Is Probably Lucky to Be in Jail Considering It Was the Girl’s Dad Who Found Him
This is precisely why kids don’t (or at least, shouldn’t) have any “right to privacy.” An Ohio father tracked down a Facebook predator after his 11-year-old daughter disappeared with him.
In a shocking turn of events, the kidnapper is a convicted sex offender.
Though the report isn’t clear on how he tracked down Sims, the father apparently saw his daughter leaving his house and getting into a car with the suspect at around 1 a.m. on March 1. The dad followed them and called police, who pulled over and arrested Sims around 30 minutes later.
The girl reportedly told police that she had been staying with Sims and admitted they had sex.
Lorain Police Detective Tabitha Angello told the Chronicle-Telegram: officers executed search warrants at Sims’ home and found items relating to the alleged rape.
“Sims was previously indicted for rape, gross sexual imposition and unlawful conduct with a minor in 2010 for an incident that occurred in 2004,” the report states.
The real question: who put this guy back on the street where he could rape again?
