Clarion Man Busted By Attorney General Child Predator Unit

Clarion County man arrested by Attorney General's Child Predator Unit; accused of transmitting nude webcam videos

HARRISBURG - Agents from the Attorney General's Child Predator Unit have arrested a Clarion County man accused of using a computer webcam to send sexually explicit videos of himself to who he believed was a 13-year old girl. The "girl" was actually an undercover agent using the online profile of a young teen.

Acting Attorney General Bill Ryan identified the defendant as Vincent David Elliott, age 39, of 520 Wood St., Clarion.

Ryan said that Elliott initially approached the undercover agent in an Internet chat room in December 2010, asking to be added to the girl's "buddy list" for online messages. Several days later, Elliott allegedly contacted the girl again, telling her that he was "watching porn" and "making myself happy as I watch."

Elliott is then accused of sending the girl a webcam transmission that showed him naked from the waist down, engaging in sexual activity in front of his computer. While continuing to masturbate on video, Elliott allegedly asked the girl if she had "ever seen one in person," later adding, "teaching you would be fun," and, "I know you'd like it."

According to the criminal complaint, Elliott approached the girl online again in January 2011, transmitting a second video that showed him nude and engaging in sexual activity. Elliott also allegedly proposed meeting the girl for sex, telling her, "Wish you were here to help me."

Ryan said that Elliott is also accused of sending numerous explicit messages to the undercover agent, including instructions about how to masturbate and links to pornographic websites.

In addition, Elliott allegedly instructed the girl to delete their conversations and the pornographic links from her computer's search history, so the girl's mother would not discover their communication.

Elliott was arrested on February 24th by agents from the Child Predator Unit, assisted by Pennsylvania State Police from the Clarion Barracks and the Clarion Borough Police Department.

Elliott is charged with two counts of unlawful contact with a minor (related to sexual offenses), which are both first-degree felonies each punishable by up to 20 years in prison and $25,000 fines.

Elliott is also charged with two counts of criminal use of a communications facility (related to sexual offenses), both third-degree felonies which are each punishable by up to seven years in prison and $15,000 fines.

He was arraigned before Clarion Magisterial District Judge Duane L. Quinn and jailed in lieu of $100,000 bond. Elliott was also prohibited from using the Internet or computers and may not have contact with any child under the age of 18.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 1st, at 9:30 a.m., before Magisterial District Judge Quinn. Read More...

Dude looks every bit like one. You would think that most people now are aware of what Dateline NBC has been doing now for quite some time, and still people insist on resorting to such pathetic means to satisy their desire. Throw the book at this piece of trash.

If he truly did not communicate with a minor, but with an adult posing as a minor, how can they arrest him?

I'm not on his side. Just asking.

To 12:00 a.m. poster:

An admirable ambition. However, may I suggest you improve your writing skills....learn about capital letters, punctuation, sentence structure, and then, instead of hoping to get a degree, work at it. Goals are not achieved by hoping...but by working and doing!!!

1:00:00 AM EST It doesn't matter who he was really talking to. He believed he was communicating with an under age youth and transmitted the stuff anyway.

LMAO @ 2:33 is that sarcasm that you wrote? It sure seemed like it... lol but he is a creepy looking fellow.

1:00 I believe it falls under charges similar to conspiracy. Just like when someone attempts to buy drugs from an undercover but it's only flour instead of cocaine. They technically didn't buy or possess drugs but they thought they did so they are arrested.
