Tilden Lester apparently isn't up to speed on this whole subtlety thing.
Even that "To Catch a Predator" guy thinks Lester could have tried harder.
Police say the 50-year-old Federal Way man first came on their radar when he reached out to an undercover detective in an incest chat group. The cop was posing as a father with two young daughters. Lester played the part of the perv who wanted to sleep with those girls, a role he seemed eminently qualified for considering his screenname was "DrPeddelDfile."
According to the cops, Lester bragged about having sex with a 13-year-old girl in California. He also claimed to have taught the girl to have sex with dogs, and sent the undercover cop hundreds of graphic pictures over instant message to back-up the claim made by his online handle.In order to convince the detective to let him have sex with his daughters, Lester promised to share his vast collection of porn. A transaction that naturally took place at a Denny's. (You'll never see that kind of crap go down in an IHOP.)
Lester was later busted during a second planned meet-up at a Tukwila Starbucks. He's since been charged with attempted rape of a child in the second degree, possession of child porn and also faces a lesser count of giving himself an unimaginative nickname.
