23-year-old Ryan T. Mock of Allentown, Pa. was recently arrested for the 2010 rape of a 13-year-old girl from Lower Macungie Township. Mock is accused of posing as a 16-year-old boy on MyYearbook grooming the girl for sex. In August of 2010 police say that the girl invited Mock to her house under the impression that he was 16.
This wasn’t a statutory rape either. Mock allegedly restrained the girl and raped her while she tried to stop him. After he had left the house he texted his victim to wash the sheets.
The rape recently came to light when it came up during a class discussion at school and her teacher asked her to speak with a guidance counselor.
This isn’t Mock’s first go around either. Back in 2011 Mock was sentenced to 2 years for having sex chats with a 14-year-old boy and a 15-year-old girl on MyYearbook.
But wait, there’s more. This past December Mock pleaded guilty to the June 2010 sexual assault of a minor in Lehigh County. It seems that Mock was quite the busy little predator in 2010.
I wonder how many more victims he has out there.
It goes to show that just because someone has been caught for inappropriately chatting with teens online it doesn’t mean they haven’t committed much more heinous crimes.
UPDATE 4/29/2012: Mock was sentenced to 7 to 15 years for the Lehigh County rape.
