MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A man who had pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography in October, but didn’t have to surrender immediately, allegedly lured another teen through a website called VampireFreaks.com to his Surfside apartment, according to CBS4 news partner the Miami Herald.

According to the Herald, Nelson Carrizo, 30, plead guilty to child porn possession last year and was given a three-year prison term. A Miami-Dade judge and lawyers allowed Carrizo to stay free during the holidays and turn himself in after the New Year.

A court-ordered psychological exam determined that Carrizo wouldn’t be a danger to society if allowed to turn himself in later, according to the Herald.

The Herald reported Carrizo then met a teen through VampireFreaks.com which has allegedly “been stung by reports of users committing rapes and murders.” The Herald said Carizzo reported his occupation on the site as “sinner.”

According to the Herald, the teen said the duo met on VampireFreaks.com in June 2012, two years after Carrizo had originally been arrested in March 2009. Carrizo allegedly urged the teen to come to the house he shared with his mother for sex, the Herald reported.

Carrizo now faces two additional charges of unlawful sex with a minor and prosecutors are asking the judge to increase his original sentence from three years in prison to 50 years behind bars.

The Herald reported VampireFreaks.com claims 1.7 million user and at one point had a clothing store in New York City that closed in 2011.
