CRIME, sex with minors [W, H]

Kevin Van Gorden, 23, of Westchester was arrested in Pittsburgh for having sex with 13 year old girl he met in an Internet chat room. See Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (Jill King Greenwood).

Chicago Tribune (Angela Rozas):
A Hillside private-school counselor was convicted Thursday of sexual assault for having off-campus intercourse with a 16-year-old student she counseled in 2004.

Kathy Miraglia, 35, had been a counselor in training at the Hillside Academy--a school for troubled youths--for less than a year when she was arrested on charges that she had a sexual relationship with two teens, the second a 17-year-old.

  • Dateline has created a franchise of running stings on sex predators.

    One of the things that gets me about how TV handles these cases is that it's clearly trying to be lurid and tittilating.

    How should the media cover these cases? What is the public policy issue?

  • People who manipulate and sexual abuse minors are sick and deserve the harshest punishment. How sad? A 23 year old man engaging in sexual relations with a 13 year old girl. He needs his ass kicked. Just lock people like him up in a room with people like me, and I'll guarantee they will not solicit and sexually manipulate a minor again.

  • I think that Westchester has had a rash of these things going on. Read the Westchester blog by Rick Fox about another man from Westchester arrested for doing something to a 4 year old. He also has a link where you can see what predators live in your zip code.
