Two arrested on sex charges linked to MySpace

Two men have been arrested on allegations they had illegal sexual contact with minors they met through, a popular virtual hangout for children and teenagers, officials in Connecticut said on Thursday.

Sonny Szeto, 22, of New York, used the site to meet an 11-year-old girl, while Stephen Letavec, 39, of Pennsylvania used it to meet a 14-year-old girl, federal authorities said.

“People with nefarious intentions exploit that technology and target our children,” Kevin O’Connor, U.S. Attorney for Connecticut, said at a news conference in New Haven, Connecticut. Two arrested on MySpace-linked sex charges - Security -
