36 year old Mark Jefferson of White Bear Lake in Minnesota was stopped by Canada Customs on June 27 while trying to enter Canada.

A secondary search was completed and a laptop was located containing child pornography pictures.

He is scheduled to appear in Bail Court on June 28.

It takes two to tango .
There's some brainless girl on our side of the border woundering why the man of her Internet dreams has not arrived to sweep her off her feet yet.

Could be that the girl he was coming to meet was underage and was sending him nudies. Still gross though!

Even if a girl 1 day shy of her 18th birthday sends a topless photo. That is child porn.

I'm aware and completely agree, which is why I said it was gross. Even if she was 17 it was not appropriate. Was just saying that it may not have been a small child like people have it in their minds when they read the story. On the other hand it could have been, we'll never know.

he got caught, as he SHOULD have been... but we can't just assume the girl is just sweet and innocent. I'm sure he didnt just goggle her name for her address. Sick and wrong no doubt, but he shouldn't be hung by himself lol... go to a high school in this city and you'll see 13-15 yr olds dressing like 19-21!

Parents, teachers, lets do better, no?

I'm glad they caught this sick perv, and hopefully he'll never get into Canada.

Most of you are jumping to conclusions that the pictures are of this "girl" he was going to meet. Maybe they are pics of a little girl or boy that has nothing to do with this internet romance.
