Phoenix Man Seeking Sex With Kid Duped by Cops in Chat Room Frequented by Pederasts

Troy Lester (of course he has a moustache).
If you're a pederast, you don't have to watch To Catch a Predator to know that if you want to get caught being a pervert, your best bet is to try to pick up a kid for sex via the Internet.

And yet people do it over and over (and over) again.

A Phoenix man, 33-year-old Troy Charles Lester, took the bait this week and had some interesting things to say to a Phoenix police officer he thought was a 15-year-old kid.

Check out some of this Casanova's best pick up lines after the jump.


Our personal favorite: Lester said he wanted to take the kid back to his house to "do some licking and sucking."

No "licking and sucking" took place, though, thanks to the prowess of the Phoenix PD's Internet Crimes Detail.

This may come as news to some, but the Phoenix Police Department -- like most large-scale law enforcement agencies -- monitors chat rooms and Web sites known to be popular among pedophiles.

That's how the Phoenix PD made its acquaintance with Lester.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, on July 13, a detective monitoring the sites was sent a private message from Lester, who claimed he was a 33-year-old war veteran home from his second tour in Iraq.

The detective told Lester he was 15-years-old, but that didn't stop the alleged pervert from asking if the kid was a virgin and how far the believed child had gone sexually.

Lester sent the kid a photo of himself in his Army uniform. The photo was taken -- as photos of this nature often are -- on a cell phone camera as Lester stood in front of a mirror.

Lester then told the kid the two should meet so he could "show [the "child"] new things."  He told the kid they needed to be discreet, though, because if they got caught, Lester could "get into a lot of trouble.

Already knowing how this story ends, that's our favorite part.

Then, Lester said he wanted the minor to "suck his cock" as he performed oral sex.

Detectives set up a meeting for Lester and the faux-kid, before which, Lester asked if the alleged minor was excited to lose its [gender unspecified] virginity -- saying he would "go slow."

The meeting was set for yesterday morning at a fast-food restaurant near 24th Street and Indian School. Lester told the minor he would be driving a black Chevy Aveo and promised to wear his Army uniform.

At 9:20 a.m., Lester pulled into the parking lot of the pre-determined restaurant -- wearing his Army uniform -- and that's where he had his "hi, I'm Chris Hansen" moment.

Phoenix police swarmed the car and placed Lester under arrest.

During police interrogations, Lester came clean -- admitting he knew the child was a minor and that having sex with kids is wrong.

Here's the kicker: he then wrote an apology letter to the parents of the non-existent minor stating he had sexually charged conversations but never intended to have sex with the kid.

Lester was taken into custody and charged with luring a minor for sexual exploitation. Despite the fact that no minor actually was involved

If this is the same Troy Lester I knew when he was a child, his own mother is the one that  molested him. You can partly blame her. I was hoping he would grow up and get out of her clutches. She along with my ex-husband were doping me at night and molesting her children and mine. Troy I tried to send her to prison too. Avery lied as a child and said he wasn't being molested. I sent my ex to prison for 17 yrs. He is dead now. So he can't hurt any other children. Troy was a sad little boy. At about 4 yrs. old he tried to hang himself by winding his neck in string. His mother treated him like a stepchild and catered to Avery. I remember one time Mary got up in the morning and Troy tried to go hug her. She told him to get away and let her wake up. Then Avery came out and went to her and climbed up in her lap and told him how much she loved him. I am not giving Troy an out for what he is doing, I am saying, his mother molested him and let men molest him too. So sorry, I couldn't get you and your sister out.

i too served with this guy and actually went on a mission with him , he wasnt a good soldier at all and caused more problems in our squad then was needed. i hope they boot his a$$ out the army he doesnt deserve to wear the uniform, regardless of how many tours and past deployments it only takes one mess up to ruin all the good and really all the good wasnt good at all , so no loss , he deserves what he gets.

His tours were garbage. He did everything he could to get out of working. Didn't do shit. Lazy everyday. Sucking up tax payers dollars and then had the audacity to say the army broke him and now they need to pay him.

Okay congrats to phx pd. This dude seemed like a creeper when I first met him in my unit. Nd to his cousin I know people wit 4-5 tours nd they don't come back like that including myself. There is a way to have honor nd a way to jus be a creeper nd jus sick puppy nd we kno where he is in that spectrum. Nd how dumb can one b to write a letter to the parents who knowingly don't exsist. I guess nicknames do live up to their meaning, "Chester Melester."

Deployed with him also, and yeah always struck me as a creeper. I dont think doing what we did he really had a chance to interact with iraqi kids, thank god, but who knows. Whats funny is that the mustache they point out at the beginning of this article, is exactly why we called him Chester the Molester. Guess we were spot on in that department. Im pretty disgusted that he claims to have represented us, to make himself look cool trying to do something like that.
