He said his client had served as a volunteer firefighter, at one time enlisted in the Air Force and currently works at a restaurant.
Allentown police began investigating Mock in September 2010 when they received information from the Delaware County Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, which had received a tip about a user of the site claiming to be 16 and requesting nude photos from a girl.
"Defense attorney Michael Stump said Mock was found not to meet the criteria of being a sexually violent predator.Using the profile name "Young Money," Mock made a number of sexual references while chatting with the 14-year-old boy and 15-year-old girl, according to an arrest affidavit.After requesting photos from the girl, he wrote to her that he would send her a "pic or two" in return, according to court records.A 22-year-old Allentown man who asked a girl for nude photos while he posed as a 16-year-old on a social networking website has been sentenced to 111/2 to 23 months in Lehigh County Prison. Mock, who was granted immediate work release, told Judge Maria L.
Dantos that he made a "complete thinking error" when he joined September and had sexual chats with a 15-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy."I've learned to take full responsibility for my crime," said Mock, who did not have physical contact with his victims.Mock eventually admitted creating a profile on the website using a false birth date, saying he immediately planned to change the birthday to reflect his true age, court papers say.
