Mom busts alleged child predator – John Zarrella has the story

This morning CNN is reporting a story of a crusading parent out to keep her daughter safe.

A mother we are identifying only by Carolyn, her first name, pretended to be her own 11-year-old daughter and used social media to turn the tables against an alleged child predator. John Zarrella has more on the story.

Carolyn says she found inappropriate messages sent to her daughter from a grown man and fooled the alleged predator into thinking she was her daughter in order to stop him and eventually have him caught. “The man now charged with sending the lewd texts and pictures is 23 year old Michael Jerome Bradley,” Zarella says. “But Bradley might still be out there if not for Carolyn's dogged pursuit.”
