The most prolific sex offender in the MySpace era, in my opinion, is back in the news again. Scott Shefelbine was arrested over a dozen times for charges relating to MySpace and underage girls. I think you can connect the dots. Each time his parents would pst his bail including putting up their home and business. Eventually, a judge got smart to Shefelbine’s habit and revoked his bond.
Back in 2008 Shelfelbine entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to 20 years back in 2008. Since that time he’s been trying to have his guilty plea withdrawn. He had an appeal for a new trial rejected once before in 2012. 2014 was no different as Shefelbine had his appeal new trial rejected once more.
Considering this is a guy who would search for new victims even after he was arrested he should consider himself lucky that he got a 20-year plea deal. Come on Scoot, you only have 14 years left. Stick it out like a trooper, won’t you?
Back in the day, I was hoping he would have gone to trial because he was looking at a life sentence.
