    Giron pleaded guilty in January to aggravated sexual assault in connection with the October 2008 incident involving the Union City girl. He was arrested after the girl's parents learned of the situation, and charges that he molested two 13-year-old girls were dropped when he pleaded guilty to the more serious charge.

    Hudson County prosecutors say Giron used a flashy MySpace Web page to promote his bogus talent scout persona. They called him a clear example of the type of danger parents need to be aware is lurking on the internet.
