Internet Sex Case Brings 12-year Prison Sentence - In an emotionally charged hearing, an Austin, Texas, man who traveled to West Bend several times to have sex with a 15-year-old girl he met on the Internet, was sentenced Friday to 12 years in prison as the victim and the man's three children looked on.
“You, sir, are every parent’s worst nightmare,” Judge Patrick J. Faragher told Richard F. Geyer, 44. “All of us have a bit of a monster within us. It is how you dealt with that monster that brings us here today. Now you realize how foolish and stupid you were.”
According to a criminal complaint, Geyer and the girl met in an online chat room in February 2007, after which Geyer came to West Bend several times over the next three months, often meeting her at the West Bend Public Library and then going to a motel.
Is justice served?
