Man pleads guilty in MySpace case - The 48-year-old man, accused of raping two teenagers, using MySpace to target them, pleaded guilty Friday to two counts of statutory rape, and was sentenced to at least 40 years in prison.
The prosecutors told the Observer that the victims, both girls, were from Charlotte and were 14 and 15 at the time of the sexual assaults.
Prosecutors said the man struck up a relationship with the girls through MySpace posing as a man in his 20’s. He also chatted with them through AOL.
"Predators don't have to snatch kids from the street anymore," Miller said. "All they have to do is type in seven little letters `MySpace' on a computer and they have literally thousands of children to pick from."
When he finishes serving his minimum sentence, he'll be about 90 years old and won’t be posing much of a threat to anybody…
