Abraham Spear: Banjo-playing pedophile
When someone told me about this story, my first thought was, “Well, of course he’s a banjo player.” IYKWIMAITYD:
A country musician has been sentenced to 17 years in prison after pleading guilty to trying to have sex with a woman’s seven and nine-year-old daughters.
Abraham Spear was arrested at a restaurant in Dallas on September 20, 2012, when he arranged to meet an undercover FBI agent, posing as the mother of the two young girls.
The 30-year-old Banjo player, who was set to perform with the Josh Thompson band at the time of the incident, was sentenced to 210 months in federal prison in Dallas, Texas.
Authorities began investigating Spear when he logged onto a website, using the screen name MUSICMAN30, and began communicating with a woman who was actually an undercover FBI agent . . .
[After he] was arrested by federal agents [he] broke down sobbing, insisting that he wasn’t going to actually do anything.
‘Spear also admitted that he had engaged in sexually explicit communications with other mothers of minor girls, including one in which he offered to pay $200 to engage in sexual acts with the mother’s minor daughter,’ according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
Watch out for those pedophile banjo players.
