Sex Offender Found Chatting Up Kids In Online Gaming Sites

A warning to parents to watch who their children are talking to online after a convicted sex offender was arrested for violating probation by chatting with kids on gaming sites.  

The Martin County Sheriff's Office says 33-year old Christopher Shea is not allowed to be on the internet, yet he has admitted to logging into gaming sites such as Fortnite, under usernames including "Mr. Peepers" and "Cut-Off Burrito" and having online chats with children.  

Shea was convicted for sending porn to kids, and though there is no evidence that he tried to arrange any meetings with the ones whom he talked to online in these gaming sites, the fear is that he would eventually do that.  


Parents are urged to talk to their children about their internet usage and Sheriff's officials want to hear from anyone whose child may have come into contact with Shea.
