Carthage man arrested in Michigan sting on child sex predators

A Carthage man was one of four people arrested in a child predator operation May 2 and 3.

Crispher A. Medina, 20, Carthage, and three other men, Holt High School basketball coach Muhammad El-Amin, 36, Aubrey Davon Houck, 33, and Chad Allen Gober, 46, were charged with child sexually abusive material, using a computer to commit a crime (child sexually abusive material) and using a computer to commit a crime related to accosting a minor for immoral purposes.

All three charges are felonies.

The men were captured as part of a child sex sting by the Lansing Police and other area law enforcement agencies, who posted ads on a prostitution website.

From the probable cause affidavit:

Officers report a man later identified as Christher Medina reached out to the ad (hereinafter referred to as the decoy as it was actually a police officers receiving the texts and calls) via phone.

Medina agreed to pay the decoy $100 in cash for sexual intercourse. The decoy stated she was 15 years old to which Medina responded, "Yeah, yeah, that's fine as long as we don't involve any police. That's fine with me." Medina agreed to bring $100 in cash and a cherry Pepsi to the decoy.

The police arrested Medina when he arrived in the car he said he would be driving. He also had the cherry Pepsi.

These 5-Sexual Predators, should be locked up and spend years behind bars. I personally wish there were still Frontier justice for their crimes.

The reason we don't have frontier justice anymore is that Missouri has not been the frontier for a long time, having been admitted to the United States as a state in 1821.

The days of steamboats have long since passed, and we don't light our homes with whale oil anymore.

To be fair, lynchings were more common in the not so distant past than whale oil or steamboats; but modern lynchings have nothing to do with either the frontier, or with the administration of justice.

Lynchings were never frontier justice, they were just extra-judicial mob murder; and properly civilized people shouldn't fondly remember or wish to do that either.

Thank you for your definition of frontier justice!

Frontier justice is extrajudicial punishment that is motivated by the nonexistence of law and order or dissatisfaction with judicial punishment.

I believe we are too lenient on Criminals, especially when it comes to those that Hurt or Abuse Innocent Children. We need tougher laws and sentences. You may not know a Victim of Sexual Abuse, so it may be impossible for you to understand the savageness that a Victim has to deal with. What if the abuse occurred to your Child, Wife, Family Member, Etc., Do you feel you can, Just Turn the Other Cheek or do you believe in an Eye for an Eye?

What about the Article, what do you think is fair Justice for these 5-Predators or other Predators? Probation, Get-Out-Of-Jail Free, a Fine, 30-Days in Jail, Life, Etc., - What is Your Comment on the Article, Not a Comment on My Comment?
