He started with talking to her about a game first and then started engaging her in a sexually explicit conversation. He even convinced her to send him sexually explicit pictures.
Using the handle “The Delightful Deviant,” he chatted with the minor about a game at first, then engaged her in a sexually explicit conversation, the Federal Bureau of Investigations said.
Paz coaxed the girl into starting an AOL Instant Messenger account for chatting, and into giving him her phone number. Over the next year, agents said he convinced her to send him sexually explicit photos.
According to investigators, Paz told the girl not to tell her mother, and said he planned to marry her when she turned 18. When he contacted her again in 2010, the girl, then 18, called the FBI.
