A California man is accused of arranging a sexual encounter with a Medina girl he met online.

Edwin Franco Rolffo-Zavala, 24, was arrested based on encounter earlier this year with a Medina patrolman who found him parked about 3 a.m. with the 14-year-old girl.

According to the FBI, Rolffo-Zavala said he was related to the girl. The child, however, told the officer she met him online nine months previously and that he had travelled from California to meet her.

Medina police and the FBI investigated the relationship more and uncovered transcripts and videos of chats showing Rolffo-Zavala was aware of the girl’s age, federal authorities said.

Federal charges were filed Friday, and FBI agents took Rolffo-Zavala into custody Monday on a charge of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Booty call!


Wow some sick people out there. I find it hard to believe that this guy couldn't find a woman his own age in California. He must have been really desperate to travel that far for a 14 year old. Lock him up for a long time. If this was my daughter he wouldn't have made it to court and she wouldn't make it out of her room til she was 18.


One bullet would solve all his problems...


You guys do know that Ohio is discussing lowering the age of consent to 14, from 16. Age of consent in Ohio is 16, unless the adult is an authority figure. i.e. boss, teacher, coach etc. If you want these laws to change you need to contact your local congress representative. That is what leads to healthy change, not discussing how bad you are on a message board or what you can do with a gun.


I just look at it this way...
Forget the age factor for just one minute.
Internet is a great way to meet someone around the corner or a few hours away.. But both must be seriously lacking in the looks department.. put back in the age
if he couldn't find a 14 yr old to put out in his own neighborhood as she also couldn't find another older guy to give her what she wanted close by..
Both are just messed up
Let them have each other.. i say.


That's f'd up
