Parents today are having a hard time protecting their children from idiots who try to engage the kids in sexual ways.

22-year-old Cristian Murcia Araujo of Florida, was arrested for sending photos of his private parts to an 11-year-old girl and asking her to share some of herself.

He also sent sexually explicit text messages to the child.

A Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office (PBSO) detective, who is a part of a national task force known as South Florida Internet Crimes Against Children, was alerted about the crime by the child’s mother.

Araujo told the girl that she was pretty, and asked if she had a boyfriend.

The girl responded that she was just 11-years-old and that she does not have a boyfriend.

Araujo on the other hand has a girlfriend.

PBSO set up a recorded phone call between the girl’s mother and Araujo. During their conversation, Araujo confessed and said “I know what I did was wrong,” but he claimed that the child asked for the photos.

The mother asked why he would send nude photos to an 11-year-old even if she asked. Araujo replied: “because I’m an idiot.”

Araujo was charged with solicitation of a child, misuse of a two-way communication device, and transmission of material harmful to a minor.
