31-year-old Anthony Lamar Bishop of Duryea, Pennsylvania was recently arrested for allegedly receiving explicit videos from a 16-year-old girl. Bishop was said to have received the videos through Facebook Messenger. However, Bishop knew the girl in real life…
She also said that she knew Bishop and that he would give her rides home and they would smoke marijuana together.
Bishop would allegedly solicit videos from her often and would tell her that she was prettier than his girlfriend.
Investigators had received a tip about the videos from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. And when investigators showed up to Bishop’s home, he allegedly told them “I know what this is about.”
Please keep in mind while there is a world of online predators out there, that doesn’t mean that predators your kids know won’t use social media to groom them.
