At the young age of 20-years-old, Jordan Waters, of Spring Hill, Florida, was already on five years probation for soliciting a 14-year-old girl for sex over Facebook Messenger. I guess the threat of prison didn’t stop him from his acrimonious activities as he’s been arrested again for a similar crime.
Police in Hernando County, Florida, say that Waters allegedly found the Snapchat username of a 14-year-old girl and sent explicit images of himself to the girl and solicited her for sex. When the girl told him that she was 14 Waters reportedly responded with he didn’t care how old she was. To make matters worse. Waters would allegedly stand outside of the school the girl attended and would watch the students being dismissed from school. It also turned out Waters was contacting other students from the school as well.
Police were able to pose as one of the victims and convinced him to meet at a park where Waters was promptly arrested.
If I was still a parent of school age children, this story would scare the hell out of me. Waters lived only a block from the school. Even though he was on probation and not on the sex offender registry, why was he still allowed to be so close to the school? I doubt even if he was on the registry he still wouldn’t have been dissuaded from doing what he wanted to do, but this is a definite oversight. We need to stop handling these creeps with kid gloves and give them sentences that will keep them away from our kids.
