"Child 1" stated that she was 14 years old. The response was, "that's not too young. In my opinion, age is just a number and pussy is just pussy."
It's disturbing how open the child predators are speaking to children like this in every single example with the dozens of men caught in the child sex stings over the last few years in Washington County. Likely this comes because they have become emboldened over the years of meeting and raping children to the point they've lost the fear of being caught.
This is no different for Joseph Perkins in this case, who admitted in conversation with undercover police acting as the child that he "had sex or done sexual things with quite a few underage pussies."
On October 27, 2016 Perkins made arrangements to meet at Lake Elmo Park Reserve in Washington County in order to have sex with the 14 year old child in his truck the next day at 8am in exchange for $250. When he arrived he was told to drive up to the boat launch and did just that. Then he was arrested and eventually charged with soliciting a child for sexual conduct it appears.
According to the MN Department Of Corrections there are “17,400 registered (active) predatory offenders” in MN Like Joe Perkins and worse. That is only 2% of registered and “active” sex offenders who are required to be on the not public registry. 98% of sex offenders are not on the registry because 10 years is the max time in MN. Plus, 75% of sex offenders have not been assigned to a sex offender level to even make the not public list so you can understand there’s a lot more than 17,400 sex offenders in MN.
