CNET: A Sony VP Fired After Appearing In A Pedophile Sting Video!

According to CNET, the Sony vice-president in question allegedly wanted to meet a 15-year-old boy.



According to a recent CNET article, a senior vice-president at Sony has resigned from the electronics and entertainment giant after he was implicated in a video of amateur paedophilia.

George Cacioppo allegedly tried to set up a meeting with a 15-year-old boy, according to a video posted on YouTube channel People v. Preds. According to his LinkedIn profile, Cacioppo has been senior vice president of engineering at Sony for the past eight years and worked on the PlayStation Store. As CNET reports in their article, we now know that after it was revealed that he was indeed in the video, he was fired from the company.

“We are aware of the situation and the employee in question has been terminated from employment,” Sony said in an emailed statement on Sunday.

Cacioppo did not immediately respond to CNET’s request for comment via his LinkedIn account.

In the video, a cameraman can be seen walking down the street toward a house in front of which Cacioppo is standing. He then asks Cacioppo who he plans to meet and refers to him as “Jeff.” As the cameraman asks further questions, Cacioppo walks back into the house and closes the door: apparently unwilling to answer. The cameraman then starts shouting to call the police on Cacioppo.

According to a Google Drive link posted in the video description, CNET reports, Cacioppo allegedly spoke to a person who said he was 15 years old on Grindr, a social networking app for gay, bisexual, trans, and queer people. They also exchanged pictures, and Cacioppo told the decoy his name was “Jeff”. He then allegedly gave the bait his address so they could have sexual relations. The lure said they would take an Uber to the location, and Cacioppo allegedly waited for him outside.

It is unclear whether law enforcement was called following the meeting. San Diego police did not immediately respond to CNET’s inquiry about the case.
