Richard Jessie Smith is charged with sexual exploitation of a child and child misconduct. 

Officers arrested him June 9 after tracking him to Lenexa, Kansas, by "pinging" the alleged victim's cellphone. 

The Johnson County Sheriff's Department said Smith had two train tickets with him. They believe he planned to bring the teenager back to Michigan.

Police said Smith sent the girl explicit pictures and texts after meeting her through a social media website.

Smith is expected back in court June 19.



No need to be said, but what the heck; SCUM!

All child molesters should have a sign painted on their house and a special license plate to identify them. And no, I don't care about their rights anymore.


I believe strongly that once any individual is successfully convicted of being a child molester, that individual has lost (its) civil rights. They should be immediately from the bottom of there feet, to the very top of there head dipped in a un-washable, permanent ink that is easily, very easily recognized in the community. Of course the community and all local police departments would be alerted and educated about this program.
The reasoning for the permanent ink and why it is on that individual will be well known. Just how they are treated by people in the community, oh well, political correctness and discrimination would not, and can not apply with such cases, Good luck.


Body waste applies here but I don't want to offend!


Room + Dad (or an adult who gives a damn) + Gun = Less tax dollars spent and justice served. (if he's guilty, which given the evidence)


Not a room, behind the shed! I don't want anybody to have to clean up after this piece of fecal matter.


The room exists, specifically for this type of job.
Steel door, no windows, big drain in the middle.
Trap door to the side where the body drops into the furnace.

Hose it down and shuffle in the next dirt bag.
