From the Sun-Sentinel via Miami Herald:

By the time the 15-year-old girl's dad realized that something was going on, she had already participated in several online video sex sessions with a man who was nearly twice her age. Federal agents from Homeland Security Investigations say a North Lauderdale man "met" the San Francisco teen in September using an anonymous online chatting site called Omegle.

They then began communicating on Skype, using the video-conferencing, online chat and instant messaging features of the free communications app. When the girl's father became suspicious and took her phone in November, he printed out "approximately 143 pages" of sexually explicit online chats between the two, which he turned over to San Francisco police and Homeland Security Investigations agents in South Florida and California. On Monday in federal court in Fort Lauderdale, Marckenson Chery, who turns 29 this week, pleaded not guilty to one federal charge of enticement of a minor.
