Daniel Austin, 56 years old, of Acworth, Georgia, was arrested without incident on Friday, August 31, 2012, in Ringold, Georgia, by the FBI-led Safe Child Task Force agents and officers after he traveled there to meet a minor child for purposes of having sex.

Austin came to the attention of law enforcement over the Internet, wherein he began a series of “chats” with undercover agents/officers regarding his desire to have sex with a minor child.

Austin was transported and processed at the Catoosa County Detention Center on state charges of attempted child molestation and violation of the Computer Pornography Act.

Update: Evidently, the charges were either dropped (unlikely) or Mr. Austin made bail. He does not show on an inmate search of Georgia jails or the federal inmate search.

You know it wasn't a scientology child, or there'd probably be no report.

He's listed as having done the sunshine rd which is done after you go "clear". More stellar individuals from the church of satantology.

Karin Pouw's response in the press about this incident regarding a "Clear" Scientologist's:

Karin states: "First of all, a "cleared pedophile is a cleared pedophile! LRH" and "all allegations are a lie- the kid was a bitter, defrocked pedophilia who clearly pulled it in"!:omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg::omg:

I was informed today that members of the Georgia media are on top of this story... just one more issue the cult has to worry about.

Lots more docs and info up at Tipping Point

It's too bad we didn't find the Jail Population Report - - for the Oct 21, when he would have been listed.
www.lmjc.net/Catoosa Jailpop.pdf

They list the full charges and bail for each, whether it's a felony or Misdemeanor. Currently it's for Oct 22 2012 and he's not listed.

Only in the google mini cache of some date before that and it's near impossible to get a screenshot of it. Google doesn't hold it in it's main cache system. All I saw was that he was on hold, that all were felonies and the bail listed in the $$$ twenty thousands for each of the 5 charges. This probably explains why he was still detained. Couldn't post the high bail amounts in total.

Humanitarian level: $100,000 donation. Bet he wishes he had that money now.

We are supposed to presume he's innocent until proven guilty. For his sake, I hope he's innocent. He'll spend the rest of his life in prison if he's not.

And that would be bad because...?

Are you suggesting he should spend his life in prison if he's innocent?

Sadly, many innocent people do spend the rest of their lives in prison for crimes they didn't commit. Thankfully there are efforts out there to help overturn these convictions

Well, gee maybe after 60 years, English has become my second language.

But, when AnonMary said "We are supposed to presume he's innocent until proven guilty. For his sake, I hope he's innocent. He'll spend the rest of his life in prison if he's not." I thought the end of the second sentence was "He'll spend the rest of his life in prison if he's not innocent."

I'm sorry, I just can't parse it any other way. And I still don't understand why a non-innocent, ie guilty, child molester shouldn't spend his life behind bars.

I don't either. I think every child molester should. I'm not sure why you would think my statement implied I would. I have no arguement with you on this.

Here in the USA, our system of criminal justice has a fundamental law that the criminal is presumed innocent until guilt is proven by a jury of his or her peers. I mentioned that because it's real easy to presume the guy is gulity. Just for the fact that he's been charged. Just based upon the information provided by the FBI press release. The fact that he's a scientologist might make that easier for critics to presume he's guilty. I just wanted to remind readers we are supposed to be above the base cravings to convict before one is officially convicted of the crimes.

I hope this clears up any misunderstanding.

That they are felonies, I already stated that, as you did as well. I was just disappointed that the complete doc with all the particulars, along with bail, was not found in time before it went off the net. I have a small hard to read copy of a small cache of what was in the Jail Population Report for the Oct 21 on his warrants and bail and it's too big to post in the albums it here, so I'll try the other route. Give me a few to upload it.

OK here it is. Very small
