Adult men arrested attempting to meet juveniles for sex

“Cruel Summer”, the name of an undercover operation where male and female detectives pose as juveniles on Internet websites, striking up online conversations with adults looking for sexual encounters, resulted in 17 arrests recently according to information distributed in a press conference yesterday.

The men arrested in the most recent multi-agency operation, bring the total captured to 63 since the operations started in 2011. Defendants added to the list Friday traveled to the confidential rendezvous point from Duval, Clay and St. Johns counties, and from as far away as South Carolina and Virginia. Their ages ranged from 19-years-old to 60-years-old.

“Invariably these people are expecting some kind of sexual relationship with an underage female or an underage male,” a sheriff’s representative said. This is the fourth such operation where the rendezvous point was set up here in St Johns County.
