Toms River Man Gets 12 Years In Child Luring Case

TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — A Toms River man convicted of trying to lure three young children into a specially rigged, candy-filled van has been sentenced to a dozen years in prison.
Brian Warner, 51, will also be on lifetime supervision under Megan’s law.
Warner was sentenced Thursday, six years after he tried to lure two sisters, ages 9 and 10, and their 7-year-old brother into a van equipped with a candy-filled cooler.
The van also had a police scanner, a cage, black louvers on the windows, soundproof padding and sensors to alert occupants if someone was approaching.
Warner maintained his innocence and his defense attorney says that while his behavior was peculiar, it was not criminal.
He stood trial on the charges in 2005, but the jury was deadlocked and a mistrial was declared.

    Jason must be a pedophile,if he sees no reason to send this low life to prison…………

    It is sad that we need to send people to prison for nothing, he did nothing to harm the children, and as far as this article explains it, it he has no prior weirdness with kids, so how can he be guilty? he never touched them, makes no sense, but these days you never know, he may have wanted to kill them, this reminds me of the movie Minority report with Tom Cruise, Guilty before a crime is committed ?

    One way trip to the barn. Candy fill it first.

    Wouldn’t it be cheaper just to take him out behind the barn and plug him?
