Michael Dolson had a problem.
The 49-year-old was a child pornographer with a large collection of photos and videos, but he wanted more.
He sent potential molesters a photo of a woman abusing a 3-year-old child from his collection.
He pretended he was that woman, to encourage people to send him similar photos.
That was not quite enough, so he used computer software to disguise his voice so he could also talk like his fake persona.
He didn’t only want to trade photos; he wanted others to abuse their own children and send him the images.
After one woman notified police, police took over her identity and corresponded with him.
Mr. Dolson tried to encourage the officer to find an infant to babysit and abuse.
He provided instructions.
When he was caught, he was sentenced to 17 ½ years in prison.
He used to be president and fundraiser for a field hockey organisation for kids.
In his letter to the judge, Mr. Dolson included a poem with a last line whose irony escaped him:
"What really matters is I made a difference in the life of a child."
