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

Matthew Calek

Matthew Calek evidently thinks its cute that as he gets older, he thinks the age of the males he's attracted to might get older to. Sadly for some teenagers- his current attraction seems to be boys in their teens.

Calek was sentenced to five years in prison in Iowa in 2002 after a conviction for enticing a 15-year-old boy to engage in sex.

Seven months after his release from prison while still on supervised release, Calek posed as a 14-year-old named "Josh" on MySpace and befriended a Philadelphia boy, 15, who was having family problems, prosecutors said. At Josh's invitation, the boy flew to Chicago in July 2006, but Calek sexually assaulted him in a secluded area and abandoned him, the charges alleged.

Three months later, Calek posed as an MTV producer and enticed a 17-year-old boy to read a script for a possible movie role, according to his plea agreement. The script had a sex scene. The boy balked at first but later agreed to engage in sex with Calek while being videotaped, prosecutors said.

Calek later tried to coerce the boy into sex again by threatening to distribute the video at the victim's high school.

In his plea for Mercy from the court, he had requested that U.S. District Judge Wayne Andersen sentence him to 25 years in prison, the judge handed him a 55 year sentence instead and stated that he'd almost handed down the max sentence for the charges which would have been life.

Something tells me that even after 55 years, the judge is going to remember what most likely was the most truthful statement during the entire sentencing hearing:

"I'm going to go to the grave worrying that some other kid is going to have a problem," said the judge, noting that even at an elderly age, Calek could still be a threat when he is released from prison.
