Underage Sex Sting Arrest List

Here is the list of suspects arrested in an underage sex sting.

The Manatee County Sheriff's Office arrested 43 men in Operation Green Shepherd, an online sting that was designed to catch people soliciting sex with children. The suspects are from several different Florida counties, including Pinellas, Hillsborough, Collier, Charlotte, Lake, Sarasota and Manatee. One man was from Ohio but staying at a Lakewood Ranch home.

The suspects were arrested at a Manatee County residence, where authorities said the suspects believed that they were meeting children to engage in sex. Instead they were met by authorities who placed them under arrest.

Below is the county-by-county list of the men arrested so far. More arrests may follow:

Let's see how many of these perv's ACTUALLY get punished and how long the punishment will be. This is how the stage is set... if they don't have severe punishment it sends the signal that it will be tolerated. Personally, I can't think of ONE use for anyone that commits ANY TYPE of crime against children~ can't we just sit them in the electric chair during questioning? ZAP! DONE! NEXT!
Melodie LaRue September 17, 2012 at 11:29 PM
To me that is child prostitution and trafficking. I agree about the severe punishment. I makes me sick to think of all the victims out there. They should have to pay for their actions and catch the pervs. who actually post their children up for prostitution! What sicko would do that to their own child???
Justice Forall September 18, 2012 at 02:51 AM
Usually in a sting operation they have an undercover cop pose as a decoy. The "decoy" pretends to be a child and when someone bites they lure them to a location (usually a home) where the perv thinks they are meeting the "child" for sex. The best part is that when the perv shows up they arrest him. The pervs come up with some stupid excuses but it is what it is and they are arrested on the spot~ no questions asked (and no need either). They are guilty the second they show up!

hang them all no more chances cause u never know it may be your child getting hurt absused or messed with
Kristin Taylor September 18, 2012 at 04:06 PM
Might be time to keep teens off the internet til they are 18..unless its school related! Sex is NOT the only thing that is being solicited. I have 12 children and if not monitored they would never put down their phones. Once a person young or old has entered theae sites to solicit or be solicited, they should be punished and banned from the internet for a period of years. That... Would STING!!!!
Gwen Thomas September 18, 2012 at 05:35 PM
Its sad and shocking to see so many men of all ages that are guilty of this offense. I believe they're all sick beyond repair. Crimes against children are the most selfish and disturbing type in society. Once proven guilty without a doubt, I honestly would like to see them neutered. Yes, that's right. Remove their testosterone producing testecles to induce ED and enable their brains to think of other things besides having sex with children.
Justice Forall September 18, 2012 at 09:51 PM
Neutered? You are too kind! What use is there for a person capable of this crime? Death penalty, that should deter them! To those who think the innocent should be punished (no internet until age 18??) ~How about parents being parents and instead of allowing electronics to babysit their children they should actually be actively involved with their children!
Jermaine September 19, 2012 at 03:22 AM
Justiceforall ...death is a cruel punishment because all sex offenders are NOT alike. .plz do some real research without your emotions...some of these offenders were victims too n because..get this..no magic genie appears over a person at age 18...they carry the pain and confusion on others...some are creepos n they should be locked up cause they don't get it
nancy September 19, 2012 at 09:15 PM
What I find incredible is that so many men fell for the same trap that was set about six months ago. Are these different men than those that were rounded up before?? Talk about stupid! Can you believe such a strong impulse?
Joshua Nelson October 12, 2012 at 03:53 AM
I understand how you feel, i completely agree that what these guys did was sick and wrong, i agree there should be punishment. However, some of these men never did anything but contact these "girls", were their intentions to have sex, yes, did they ever do that, no. It makes no difference if they actually performed the act, if it was done in your heart its as if you committed it in life, thats not my point. My point is that one of my closest friends is on this list and i will not cast him or any other of these men, whom I've never meant, to capital punishment because of a moment of weakness. Some of them are probably complete perverts like you said, but dont pin that on every single one, sex and the addiction of it is a very real problem for many men, id rather help them overcome than kill them and take a life that was never mine to take. What they did was wrong, no arguing that, and i know you may not have been serious about your comment but i take life very seriously(not to say you don't), if they have a problem than they need help, will it use up our money, yep, but i can't throw around lives as if i am death himself. Should there be punishment, you bet your bottom dollar there should be, but not capital punishment. Sorry for the rant, no disrespect.
Leslie Inman October 12, 2012 at 04:58 PM
I agree with you about the punishment! I think pedophiles, rapists and serial killers should all get the death penalty. When you put them in jail, all they do while locked up is scheme and plot about doing it again when the get out! These types of freaks in society actually are hunting people! They never change either because they are completely wired wrong mentally!!
Leslie Inman October 12, 2012 at 05:04 PM
I don't think they even think about getting caught because all they can think about is one thing. It's the driving force in their sick lives! I saw TO CATCH A PREDATOR that was doing the sting in Ft. Myers and one guy brought his little boy with him when he was going to meet a young boy. The police had to call the perv's wife and tell her what happened and that her son was there and could she please come and get him. That poor woman must have been mortified!
