Most of them don't hit the media, as arrests of males trying to sexually abuse minors don't raise much interest by reporters, but they all hit the courthouse.Our organization is still bringing on chat-log contributors and phone verifiers.Hopefully in the future Massachusetts will strengthen their laws and make it so the act of conversing sexually with a minor is prosecuted in a manner consistent with most of the rest of the country.
As the article notes, there are other arrests out there which simply aren't covered by media outlets.
Since "To Catch a Predator" ran it's course, we've been focusing on working with police and just getting arrests.
Unfortunately, that won't be the case in Edward Rozmiarek's case.
In November 2015, while we were working an area in rural New York for the purposes of getting some arrests, Edward hit up one of our decoys using the screenname "a Great Guy." For the next few weeks, he slowly worked at befriending our 13 year old decoy, before moving on to talk of a sexual nature.
but after it became apparent that Rozmiarek wasn't going to travel to New York, we knew we had to contact local law enforcement in his area.
