Assistant U..S. Attorney's 'My Space' Page

News reports aren't getting any better for Pensacola's Assistant U.S. Attorney John David Roy Atchison.

A Michigan grand jury indicted him this afternoon on a new charge basically arising out of the same set of operative facts. He now faces, potentially, as much as life in prison, if convicted:
A U.S. prosecutor and youth sports leader from Florida who authorities say flew to Michigan for an expected sexual encounter with a 5-year-old girl was indicted on an additional charge Tuesday and ordered held without bond.

He originally faced charges of use of the Internet to seek illicit sex, which carries a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison and a maximum of 30 years; and interstate travel to engage in illicit sexual contact, which carries up to 30 years.

On Tuesday, a federal grand jury added a charge of crossing state lines with intent to have sex with someone under 12, which carries a minimum 30-year prison sentence and a maximum of life.

The Detroit Free Press also is reporting that Atchison had a cyber-home in the notorious internet sewer known as MySpace.com. The information supposedly comes from law enforcement sources. How they can be sure it really belonged to Atchison, we do not know.
Under the user name fldaddy04, name John and caption "Experienced, understanding Daddy," Atchison allegedly described himself in his profile as: "Handsome, educated, professional, experienced Daddy. I love younger girls. Like everything about you... how you think, talk, act. I'm very understanding and supportive... never ever judgmental."
There's more, if you have the stomach for it, including a link to fldaddy04's MySpace.com page. Look for it yourself, if you must.

We know a professional in the juvenile crime-prevention business who routinely advises parents to order their children to show them all of their "MySpace.com" web pages -- or suffer having their computers locked away in the trunk of the car. (Warning: the results can be shocking, indeed.)

A lot of teens seem to assume parents can't comprehend computer photos or read digitalized text, so they merrily share with their "cyber friends" rank shots of themselves drinking, using drugs, and having sex, along with semi-literate narratives describing past escapades.

Apparently, teens aren't the only ones soiling the darker alleyways of MySpace.com.
