Freet also happened to be using the same site and began chatting with the decoy, who was posing as a 15-year-old boy. The chats went on for around a week, during which time Freet was made aware of the decoys supposed age. Still, after being aware of the age of the boy/decoy Freet sent nude photos of himself to the boy/decoy, talked about various sex acts and arranged to meet at a Yucaipa home.
Last Friday, the California State Parole Officers helped to locate Freet at a home on the 1300 block of Webster Street in the City of Redlands. After the conclusion of an interview by the Crimes Against Children Detail detectives, Freet was arrested for sending harmful matter to a minor and arranging to meet a minor for sexual acts.
Freet is being held at the West Valley Detention Center and is being held without bail due to the parole violation. He is scheduled to appear in court for an arraignment hearing on Thursday afternoon.
Anyone with information about this case, or other victims, should contact the detectives at the Sheriff’s Crimes Against Children Detail, (909)387-3615. If you choose to remain anonymous, call WeTip at 1-800-78-CRIME.
