Police in Virginia have done a great service, and put a sicko behind bars. A 54 yr old named Louis Ponterio attempted to make a sexual rendezvous with a 5 yr old child. Instead of walking into his Econo lodge room to act on his sick fantasy, he was met by Virginia state police, and undercover agents.
“Members of the Henrico County Police Division’s Vice Unit received information that Ponterio had attempted to procure a minor for the purpose of a sexual relationship,” Henrico Police spokesman Lt. Chris Eley told reporters. “On February, 6th, 2015, Ponterio communicated with an individual who he believed was arranging an encounter with a minor. On February 7th, 2015, Ponterio was arrested in the 5200 block of Williamsburg Road after he traveled to Henrico County with intent to engage in sexual activity with a minor.”
Ponterio is being held in Henrico County Jail without bond.Agents were able to also seize “marijuana, a teddy bear, cough syrup, Hershey’s kisses, a sex toy and other times from Ponterio,” Deputies in Stafford also raided the predator’s home finding more marijuana, weapons, and what they claimed was “digital” evidence.
Ponterio is charged with carrying a concealed weapon, electronic means for procuring minors, object sexual penetration by force, the sale and distribution of marijuana, forcible intercourse with a victim under 13, and prostitution.
This man should be publicly shamed, there are sick fantasies, but this is so disturbing. There isn’t a punishment big enough to fit this potential crime, but justice was served.
He was convicted of multiple charges which included…attempted rape, using electronic means to procure sex with a minor, prostitution and distributing marijuana. Henrico County Circuit Court served him 16 years in prison.
