I was so stunned by this article in my local newspaper yesterday that it has taken me this long to write about it.
A Long Island girl was saved from a terrible fate and her own poor judgment by an alert and caring taxi company dispatcher.
She called the taxi company to get a ride to Reading, PA. to see her ‘father’. The dispatcher didn’t believe that she was 17 and called police. It turns out that her ‘father’ was…well…
Friberg said the two met online in December. Schaeffer, who is unemployed, lives with his mother, and completed a 59-month prison sentence last year for having sex with a 13-year-old girl. He first told the Long Island girl he was 18, but soon admitted his real age and criminal past, and began e-mailing her photos of naked women, Friberg said.
The girl, who lives with her mother, told Schaeffer she was 14, Friberg said, and the two made plans to meet. “They developed an online relationship and he convinced her to come down to Pennsylvania to live with him in order to have sexual relations,” Friberg said. “She was agreeable to that.”
I hope that deluded child gets intensive and extensive counseling so she will no longer be ‘agreeable’ to a pedophile.
Well, I tell you, we here on Long Island, sadly, seem to have had more than our fair share of these kind of cases. Everything from the Long Island Lolita case in which Amy Fischer shot the wife of her ‘old enough, you’d think, to know better, and old enough to be her father’ lover, Joey Buttafuoco in the head to poor little Katie Beers who was kidnapped by a pedophile and locked up in a home made secret room for 17 days. On the second day of her imprisonment she turned 11 years old.
In the very same paper there was this article about “a music teacher and musical director in a chuch” who "pleaded guilty in January to two counts of first-degree rape. He admitted to having sexual intercourse with the girl, then 11, during the previous year at his house and in his car at a parking lot. "
Just recently a Long Island man was sentenced to prison for luring a Massachusetts girl to Long Island and used her as a “sex slave”.
I feel so awful for all these girls who had do discover so you that there are such terrible people in the world, but :eek: this girl was going to take a three hour taxi ride to PA to a man who told her that he was a convicted sex offender:eek: :eek: :eek:
I wonder if she would have had second thoughts on the long ride and I don’t even think of what would have happened to her whn when she got there!!!:eek:
PS My sister lives just outside of Reading, PA so I know that it takes a good three hours to get there if you are lucky (not the word for her!) with traffic.
