Description

This investigation set out to show the dangers associated with the Internet for children. A reporter posed online as a 13-year-old girl; it took only minutes for men to respond. While the reporter was certain not to lure or solicit, the men performed sex acts on their Web cams. Those who made travel arrangements to rendezvous with the fictitious 13-year-old were confronted, and the station's reports prompted investigations of two men followed by indictments.
