Twenty-Two Men Arrested in Florida Underaged Sex Sting
Working in conjunction with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the Polk County Sheriff's Office nabbed the 22 men in a sting dubbed "Operation Last House Call." Most of the men arrested came from Central Florida, but some had traveled all the way from Maryland, Virginia, Texas and Missouri.
Among those arrested are Andrei Jezierski, who told officers he was the former CEO of the Sky Latin America pay-TV network. He met a detective posing as a "mother" on OkCupid.com who soon revealed she was looking for a man to teach her 13-year-old daughter how to have sex.
Joseph L. Bolaino, a 19-year-old UCF student, also met someone posing as a mother on Craigslist hoping to have someone to teach their daughter how to have sex.
David Cohen, a 59-year-old software technician who has top-secret clearance with the US Government, was arrested after replying to an ad on Craigslist looking to have sex with someone's ten-year-old step-daughter. Cohen had traveled all the way from Maryland for the encounter.
Most of the men were arrested from fictional ads posted on Craigslist, though other websites were used.
