This is a good example of the use of the Internet to solicit sex from a teenager. It is becoming more common to find cases of adults that work closely with children (teachers, clergy, scout leaders, etc.) perpetrating crimes against children on the Internet.

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) --A teacher at Bronxville High School made contact with a 15-year-old girl on the Internet, then followed it up with "raw sexual communications" and arranged to meet and have sex, District Attorney Jeanine Pirro said Friday.
But the girl had reported that first contact to her parents, Pirro said, and the parents went to the North Castle police. Pirro's office was contacted and investigators assumed the girl's identity online.
So when the teacher, 45-year-old Paul Wicht of Stamford, Conn., arrived for the alleged rendezvous Thursday night, he was arrested, the district attorney said.
Pirro said parents need constant reminding that "There are individuals out there from all walks of life who are looking to have sex with young children."
