PORT RICHEY, Fla. - Authorities say the two met on a website called myYearbook.com, 32-year-old Christopher Razny and a 14-year-old girl.
The Sheriff's office says Razny and the teen chatted online, then met at an abandoned Port Richey home and had sex.
"When these kids go on and they meet somebody, you don't know. It could be somebody across the United States, or it could be a next door neighbor," said Sgt. Eric Seltzer with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office.
In this case, Razny and the 14-year-old did live near each other, making the encounter all too easy.
The girl's mother found out what was going on and notified the Sheriff's office.
They set up another meeting with Razny, who tried to run when he saw detectives, but was arrested. Investigators say he admitted to everything.
"One of the detectives, when speaking with him, asked him if he knew what he was doing was wrong. And he said 'Well, she was just a baby,'" said Seltzer.
I talked with the victim's mother by phone. She says her daughter is a straight-A student and they had talked about the dangers lurking on the internet. But it still wasn't enough. She says she never would have thought her daughter could be lured like this.
While the Sheriff's Office says they don't have the resources to set up internet stings for child predators, they say they are attacking the problem they best they can.
Detective William Lindsey is one of three who was just certified in computer forensics. "It's too accessible to children. And parents don't monitor their children properly to know what they are getting on."
MyYearbook.com is open to anyone, but does have a section for parent and child safety. The Sheriff's office says it is up parents to know what their kids are doing online.
As for Razny, investigators say this is his first arrest for a sex crime involving a minor. But he does have previous charges for burglary and battery.
