Man Busted In Kid Sex Ring Was Richland Youth Mentor
WSP’s Net Nanny Operation is still processing the 26 men who were involved in the multi-day sex ring operation of the exploitation of under age children.
It has come to light that a Richland Youth Mentor is one of the men charged.
John Scheline of Pasco is charged and he’s the former Youth Mentor at Ignite Youth Mentoring in Richland.
According to an article in the Tri-City Herald, Investigators found an advertisement Scheline placed June 13 on Craigslist suggesting that a married dad was looking for a young boy,
When a detective responded July 5 as a father offering up his 13-year-old son for sex acts, Scheline allegedly discussed in explicit detail what he would do with the boy.
Scheline eventually was given the address of an apartment. When “the (undercover) son” answered the door, Scheline turned and left and was taken into custody as he tried to get out of the complex, documents said.
18 more suspects are expected to be in court today. You can get the complete details here ——> Tri-City Herald
