Local Law Enforcement uses website to potential child predators

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS -

 An undercover operation by local and federal law enforcement this week, results in the arrest of a potential "john" Local law enforcement officers tell KFBB they use the personal listing website  'Backpage' to catch people soliciting unlawful sex acts, especially with children. The Local Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force conducted the operation by posting an ad on this website. 

The ad listed the posters age as 19. On December 11th a person responded to the ad by text message. It was in this text conversation that the responder was told the age of the escort was actually 15. The conversation continued and a location to meet was set up. This is when law enforcement took the person into custody. 

The 'john' was identified as Taj Lamar Wilson. When he was questioned by detectives he admitted that if the police had not been there he would have possibly had sex with a fifteen year old girl. Wilson was charged with sexual abuse of children and criminal possession of dangerous drugs. He appeared in court on Tuesday December 15th.
