Once Stephanie accepted Farley's invitation to chat privately, he wasted no time getting down to business.Within the first three minutes, he asked her how long she had been interested in the “room topic” and whether her involvement was “active” or merely fantasy.A digital camera and condoms were located in his vehicle.A search warrant was then executed at his residence and images of a young teenage girl that were sent by the Fort Worth officer were located on his computer.
Stephanie told him she was “Stephanie Miller” and said that her daughter was named “Sydney.” Farley suggested he might soon visit their hometown of Atlanta on business, but expressed some concern that Stephanie might be “a cop trying to entrap me.”On October 9, 2006, Farley initiated another chat with Stephanie.
Farley is sexually attracted to girls he described as “still innocent, but starting to bud a little,” and he wanted to have sex with a girl who was around nine to eleven years old.
Using the internet, he made contact with the mother of a child of that age and set out to persuade her not only to let him have sex with her daughter but also to join him in sexually violating the child.
Judge Mc Bryde also ordered that Mathew register as a sex offender and serve a lifetime of supervised release.
Over the course of the following week, Mathew communicated with the undercover officer, believing the officer to be a 13-year-old girl. Mathew stated that he would like to perform sexual acts with the girl and showed her sexually explicit photos of himself.
