A Virginia man arrested in Augusta after traveling to Georgia to be with a minor pleaded guilty Monday in U.S. District Court.

John Frederick Tysarczyk Jr., 36, of Newport News, faces 10 years to life in prison after pleading guilty to attempted online enticement of a minor.

Evidence presented during the hearing revealed that Tysarczyk came to Georgia on July 25 after sexually explicit online chats and phone communications with what he believed to be a 14-year-old girl but was in fact a law enforcement officer, according to the U.S. attorney’s office.

Drove 460+ Miles to get arrested.

He was already a convicted Sex Offender in VA.

I would say it is time to place him and a Mental Ward for the Criminally Insane and Uncontrollable.

Because JAIL does not seem to be helping control his urges.

Since we can't permanently protect society from his kind, because we have become too humane in our dealings with criminals.

Then society should Electronically (communitcations) Disconnect his ability to tap into civilization. Plus Ankle monitor him 24/7.

Either that, or buy him a 1 way ticket to another country
that accepts this.

You'd be surprised at the number of countries that allow 14 y/o consent
and even more surprisingly Japan allows 13 y/o consent according to Wikipedia.

The Nerve of you

Someone please tell me why Sex offenders do stupid things like this? You are already a Sex abuser to minors and of course the Authorities will keep you under the scope. But you are so smart until you can go out of state and get arrested for the same ole' smart thing as to find you a 14 year old in Augusta. Travelled all the way from Virginia to go to Jail. Now that is very smart of you. The food is a little fresher in the Georgia Hilton. Have a nice stay.
