Evidently, she was allegedly trying to BE the girlfriend by being the boyfriend of a 15-year-old girl she met online. Posing as a 17-year-old boy named “James Puryear Wilson”, Carissa Hads met the teenage girl on an unnamed “social networking site” around October 2010.
Hads was arrested two weeks ago on a U.S. District Court complaint accusing her of coercion or enticement of a minor, a felony carrying a maximum of 30 years in prison. On Friday, Hads was ordered held without bond by a federal magistrate judge who ruled she was a flight risk and a danger to the community.
Hads, using the “Wilson” persona, and the girl became “involved in an internet romance” that included Hads sending the teen two cell phones “for A.L.’s use to contact ‘him.’” Along with paying the girl’s monthly cell phone bills, Hads also sent her a Kindle Fire tablet, according to the affidavit.
Didn’t A.L.’s parents think it was a LITTLE strange for their daughter to be sent such extravagant gifts? And A.L.’s mother drove her own daughter 100 miles to meet an internet friend at a MOTEL? Then, two months later lets that “friend” stay at their house for five days–unsupervised?
