Feds Arrest Man Heading to Grand Rapids to Have Sex with Underage Girls
A 30-year-old Massachusetts man has been arrested after traveling to Grand Rapids to have sex with two underage girls.
WZZM-13 reports that Jonathan Ryan Ledoux engaged in conversation in an incest chatroom with a person he believed to be the single mother of two girls, aged 14 and 9, located in Grand Rapids, Mich.
Ledoux was actually speaking to a Homeland Security Investigations agent in Grand Rapids investigating online child sexual exploitation.
According to WZZM-13, court documents show the exchange between Ledoux and the agent began in November and included several disturbing comments such as:
“I definitely would like to find a woman like you with some young girls to play with."
"Don’t you think it’d be fun having a roommate to . . . rape your little girls every day."
“I mean if I get my way they’ll be my property anyways.’’
“I love using collars as a signature of ownership. Would you be alright with me buying a couple of nice but not obviously BDSM/sexual collars for them to wear after I visit?’’
On March 18, Ledoux wrote, “If I’m going to jail for this then I might as well get it over with.’’
He was arrested March 22 at Gerald R. Ford International Airport.
According to Wood TV 8, Ledoux was carrying sexual sexual paraphernalia in his bags.
Authorities say he admitted to traveling to Grand Rapids with the intent of having sex with both underage girls.
Leodoux is charged with attempted coercion and enticement of a minor and interstate travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct.
He is due in Grand Rapids federal court on Wednesday, March 27.
