When Will We Ever Take these Predators Seriously? Robert Gomez, Sex Offender, Arrested with 15 Year Old in his Bed
When is our justice system ever going to actually protect the public from sex offenders? How about from sex offenders who have already been arrested? Our judicial system continues to fail us miserably. Case and point, 42 year old, convicted sex offender, Robert Gomez was arrested after a routine search of his home in Florida. What did police find? A 15 year old girl he had met in an on-line chat room laying in his bed.
When a 42-year-old registered sex offender answered the door naked and acting nervous during a surprise check by cops, the officers acted on suspicion and searched his home.
What they found next was a 15-year-old girl in Robert Gomez’s bed, according to MyFoxTampaBay.com.
The girl cooperated, telling cops she met Gomez in an online chat room seven months ago, and that a sexual relationship began immediately. (Fox News)
Sex offender arrested after police find teen in his bed
Oh my God, what was this teenager thinking? And we wonder why we need laws to protect children and teenagers as their thought process isn’t always based in logic. It would seem that our judicial system will allow this man to repeat the same sex crime over and over. Then when he finally graduates to murder, the system will act shocked and offended.
Inside Gomez’ bedroom was a 15-year-old girl who told police she was 18. Investigators say she knew Gomez was a sex offender, and was trying to protect him.
Under the terms of Gomez’ probation he isn’t allowed to use the internet, but the victim says she met Gomez online in a Christian chat room.
Both accessed the internet through their cell phones, and police say this case, is a cautionary tale for parents.
“Chat rooms for your teen or child – it’s a mall for victims is what it is. Parents need to monitor that, monitor the phone bills,” Pecora warned. (Fox-Tampa Bay)
