A SICK retired teacher who called himself ‘Master Thorn’ and travelled with candy and handcuffs to sexually abuse two young children has been locked up.
Thomas Monti, 73, will spend over a decade in prison after FBI agents busted him for arranging to meet with two young children as part of his “violent sadomasochistic” fantasies.
The pensioner from Murfreesboro, Tennesse, was arrested by agents who had trapped him via an adult dating and sex website.
The agent was pretending to be an aunt to two girls aged 10 and six, prompting disturbing a conversation and suggestions from Monti.
At a detention and preliminary hearing on Thursday, the judge ordered Monti to be detained based on the evidence that he was a flight risk and danger to the community.
Federal court documents describe the conversation between the undercover agent and Monti on a website for people interested in fetishes, kinks, BDSM and other sexual fantasies.
Early conversations revealed sexual abuse he had inflicted on young girls.
He then offered his services to the undercover agent, saying that he would engage in sexual activities with her nieces while she watched, court documents state.
In the conversation with the agent, Monti, who went by the name “Master Thorn”, said he was once contacted by a “mother of two girls” who requested for him to train the girls “to serve”.
He then said that he traveled to Texas for six months, was paid “10 grand for the training” for the girls who were “5 and 9”.
Investigators were able to identify Monti on information that he voluntarily gave during the chatroom conversation with the agent.
They discovered that he was a retired school teacher.
On October 3 2019 at around 4am, court documents state Monti left his Tennessee home and drove to meet the woman he thought he was messaging with.
Authorities arrested Monti and found numerous items inside his car, including sex toys and candy.
