Ted Klaudt: It Just Keeps Getting Worse

New evidence has turned up in the case against former state legislator Ted Klaudt. Authorities explored his laptop and found evidence that he was an internet predator.
They accuse Klaudt of using the name "studman" in one conversation to ask a
14-year-old girl to send webcam pictures of herself. Investigators say Klaudt
also used the name "thephotoman," pretending to be a 21-year-old modeling agent.
With that, he allegedly asked a 15-year-old girl to send him photos so she could
star in a pornographic movie.

The investigator who lays out this information in an affidavit says an
18-year-old woman he interviewed backs up this evidence. She says Klaudt offered
to take photos of her using sex toys in order to build a modeling portfolio, and
to do the same for her 16-year-old sister.

It's like this case has stepped into Dateline's "To Catch a Predator" series all of a sudden. This whole things just keeps getting worse and worse and sicker and sicker.

Klaudt will be in court later this month. I wonder if he'll still plead "not guilty" if this evidence leads to more charges against him. We'll see.
