Spammer Ronnie Scelson arrested, charged with molesting teenage girl

Long-time spammer and all-around scuzzball Ronnie Scelson has been arrested in Slidell, LA and charged with molestation of a juvenile, forcible rape, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a weapon while in possession of narcotics. See WWLTV news article Man arrested after allegedly cuffing teen to chair, molesting her for the full story.

Scelson, you may remember, is known for sending out spam capitalizing on the 9/11 attacks (see Mercury News), then defending himself in this usenet thread.

Update: The Times Picayune has more on the story, adding a rape accusation involving a 15-year-old-girl.

This guy sat before Congress and essentially told them, "you can't stop me".

And he was right.

But he stopped himself. It's too bad someone else had to be involved in this fashion to get him offline.

Halting the spam doesn't seem worth it.
