The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

David Lee Vogel <3 2 txt

David Lee Vogel evidently liked to use the 'text message' or sms feature of his cell phone. Unfortunately, it seems that the convicted sexual offender also liked to use the service in order to send sexually explicit material to underage teenage girls.

Shortly after a jury was seated for the trial of a sex offender accused of sending obscene text messages and pictures to the cell phones of two teens, the defendant pleaded guilty.

David Lee Vogel, 46, was identified as the sender of the messages through his cell phone service provider. Investigators said that Vogel sent dozens of vulgar messages and obscene images.

Investigators believe that Vogel would randomly dial numbers in an attempt to find young girls, and used this method to make contact with the two under aged victims. Along with these charges, Vogel is still facing charges involving an adult woman to whom he sexually harassed. Regardless of the outcome of those charges- he'll be spending at least some time in jail thanks to his guilty plea. The judge sentenced him to 18 years in prison.
