Right as a convicted sex offender was about to meet up with a 14-year-old girl, a group of vigilantes busted his plans and revealed that the whole thing was an elaborate plan to catch the pedophile in the act.
The vigilante plot was part of the program “Dark Justice,” and in the clip online, 45-year-old Roger Lee was lured to a location to meet up with a 14-year-old girl for sex. Little did he know, he had actually been communicating with members of the vigilante group, so when he went to the location to meet the girl, the group was there waiting for him.
Lee reportedly traveled 300 miles just to meet the young girl, and when the group confronted him, he immediately fled the scene. Reports say that Lee threatened to kill himself before being arrested, and now, the already convicted sex offender is serving a two year and four month prison sentence.
“You were caught by internet vigilantes, which is the best way of describing them, who pretended to be a female and you entered into a conversation with them on the internet,” Judge Morris told Lee during court proceedings. “It soon became apparent what they did was pretend the female was 14. You went for it. I am firmly of the view you are a dangerous individual to young children.”
Lee’s previous conviction was reportedly for having sex with a 12-year-old girl.
