Mascoutah priest was ‘subpigboy4u’ online, had leather chaps and straps, police say – Belleville News

The Mascoutah priest facing child-porn charges used an email address with the prefix “subpigboy4u” to exchange images via the internet, according to police documents.

The police documents, obtained Friday by the News-Democrat, say the Rev. Gerald Hechenberger paid to join porn-sharing sites, had leather chaps in his possession when arrested, and sent messages to others seeking to exchange pornography.

“Saw the ad you posted a couple days ago seeking to host a big man. I live in the Metro East, am 6’2”, 350, have a salt and pepper beard, smooth body and am definitely a bottom,” Hechenberger wrote in one message, according to the documents.

The message continues, “You sound very interesting. I’d love to find out more about you and what you are into. I am for real and have pix to trade if you are interested.”

National, local officials warn of online dangers

The online world is vast. And one of the best ways to safeguard children is to limit their access to people they don’t know, authorities said.

Children should not have contact with strangers online and should never give out their passwords or account information. They also need to be wary of posting photographs or information with identifiers, such as where they live or go to school, and they should avoid “sexting,” which Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office Detective Sgt. David Kohler said happens all too frequently.

Children often are “friends” with people on social media whom they don’t really know well, Kohler said.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s NetSmartz program (netsmartz411.org) advises parents to “talk with children about the potential risks of communicating with adults they do not know and trust in real life,” and to consider taking their phones

High-Tech Unit works to bring online predators to justice

The convicted sex offender from Connecticut was on the hunt again.

This time, Bryan White set his sights on a girl from Burlington County. He spent months talking to her online. Now, the self-professed “child lover” wanted the 13-year-old to travel to him for sex.

Neither a previous 12-year prison term for sexual assault nor the inpatient sex offender program White was enrolled in stopped him. He was ready, showing up with condoms and liquor.

In a separate incident, another online predator pursued a 14-year-old girl whom he hoped to meet at a restaurant in Mount Holly so he could turn months of online suggestive banter into sex. He was 62.

But instead of finding the girls whom they had hoped to lure, both men were greeted by the police, who had brought evidence and arrest warrants to the planned rendezvous.

Unbeknownst to them,

Lynden man accused of sharing child porn online

Federal officials arrested a Lynden man Friday on two counts of producing and distributing pornographic photos online, according to a complaint filed in U.S District Court in Seattle.

Jamie Bartels is accused of photographing two young girls, estimated to be 5 to 6 years old, at a motel in Bremerton earlier this year and sharing the images on Rabbit, an online portal that lets users share content while simultaneously video chatting with others.

The investigation arose from a tip submitted by Rabbit to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, indicating that a user named “Lovr E” had violated its terms of service by uploading several images of suspected child pornography to its website on Nov. 26-27.

Rabbit also provided several pages of sexually explicit chats from “Lovr1” regarding that user’s sexual attraction to young girls. In addition, Lovr1 also recounts taking a girl to a hotel over a weekend

Online predators solicit videos and photos from Wichita teen

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) Sarah Poschen received her first iPhone when she was 13-years-old. Like all her friends with cell phones, she downloaded chat apps to message friends and meet new people.

Not long after, she met a person she thinks was a 16-year-old girl.

“I considered that person one of my friends at the time,” says Poschen.

The two messaged each other back and forth for several months before the person asked Poschen to Skype with her. Sarah agreed.

“First, the conversation was really casual, just asking questions about myself and I asked the person questions,” explains Poschen. But then the other person suggested the two play a game of truth or dare. Poschen agreed, but she says she felt uncomfortable.

“At one point, I was dared to take off my shirt for just a second,” says Poschen. “I was very hesitant because that’s

Proposed legislation aims to stop online sex trafficking

WASHINGTON — Last year, Maryland had the 13th-most sex trafficking cases in the country with 161, according to the National Human Trafficking Hotline.

This year, the hotline reported 61 sex trafficking cases in this the state as of June 30. Half of the incidents involved a minor, and about 84 percent included a female victim.

A House Energy and Commerce hearing Thursday examined legislation that would close loopholes in federal law that critics fear has allowed pervasive online sex trafficking.

Under current law, the Communications Decency Act does not hold online services liable for content that secondary users publish. Sites such as Reddit, Facebook and YouTube are not responsible for vile material that its commenters post in a thread or comment section.

Rep. Ann Wagner, R-Missouri, introduced the “Allow States and Victims to Fight Online Sex Trafficking Act” earlier this year to make it easier for states to prosecute websites that facilitate sex trafficking.
