Winter Haven, Florida - An Ohio man was arrested after allegedly traveling to Florida to meet up with a 13-year-old girl he first met playing video games online.

Police were called to the Winter Haven Public Library Saturday afternoon when someone saw baggage sitting in the women's restroom. Arriving officers found the 13-year-old outside of the building with several pieces of luggage. As she was questioned, Carl Sampson, 25, approached and told police that he was the girl's friend and was there to take her back to Ohio with him.

Police discovered that the two met online through video games on the Sony PlayStation 3. They communicated this way multiple times.

The girl reportedly told Sampson that she was 18 years old, but Sampson says he thought she may have been 17 after seeing a photo she sent to him. The victim knew Sampson was 25 years old.

Police say Sampson offered to come to Florida to take her back with him to get to know each other better, and hopefully something more might come of the relationship in the future.

Sampson was arrested on charges of Traveling to Meet A Minor, Interfering With Child Custody and Contributing To the Delinquency of A Minor.

While what he did was not only illegal but morally messed up, what about her? I bet ya not a damn thing will happen to her for lieing about her age.

As an adult, I'd say the responsibility is on him - the assumption being that kids are not going to make responsible decisions. But she did lie yes!

However, Ohio to Florida for a girl? Really????

Sounds like these two were a matched set.

I would have let it go.

I dunno, I think he was either completely dense, or he really did think she was 18 and all was good and legal....

As she was questioned, Carl Sampson, 25, approached and told police that he was the girl's friend and was there to take her back to Ohio with him.


If he was being some sort of deviant, he would have took off at the first sight of cops, not tell them he was talking her out of state.

Yeah, police are desperate to charge somebody with something.

I guess grandma can't visit her grand kids.

Soon it will be illegal to travel, period. :rolleyes:

Creepy!

He technically didn't do anything yet, but we all know what the next step is. Good thing they were caught early.

technically she or her parents should be in some trouble as well being that a 13 year old would not have access to that sort of ability on the PS3 if they truthfully agreed to the EULA for the PS3 she is too young.

Minority Report anyone ?

I'm not so sure about it. Why would a pedo tell the police he was there to bring the girl back to ohio? If the girl really lied about his age and she looks older than her age on the photo then i don't see a problem here as long as the police caught him before he had enough time to realise she was younger.

A man and a woman i play WoW with actually meet online while playing WoW and the guy travelled from Missouri to Floride to meet her. I think the woman is 19 yo or 20 yo and the guy mid 20. Had the woman lied about his age ...
