|Dale Hodges was a staff member of several pedo sites before he was arrested on charges related to child pornography.|
JagDawg AKA Dale Hodges was an active member of several pedophile based sites, including BL.net, BLN and BLISS, where he was on staff as a moderator. Hodges was arrested in November 2009 on charges resulting from an international sting operation which also resulted in the shut down of BL.net and the arrests of many other pedophiles.
Hodges was not only a member and moderator on the sites he would frequent, but he also met with and formed lasting friendships with several other pedophiles from the boards. Some of those people included major players in the online pedo world, including JoeCool4218 (one of the top Directors of BL.net), Steven Jones (owner and financier of several pedophile sites), and Justin Case (owner of BLOC). In addition to these persons, Hodges also associated himself with at least one other pedophile who had been previously profiled here. While authorities from ICE were investigating members of BL.net, they stumbled across our site and the profile belonging to Hodges' friend.* As a result, we were able to assist authorities with information on other members of BL.net, including Hodges, which helped lead to the arrest of four (4) individuals in the United States, several arrests internationally, and ultimately the shut down of BL.net.
Hodges states that his AoA is of little boys between the ages of 9 and 16 years old, but that the attraction could also go up or down a few years. He posted often about his nephew "J" and a boy named "Micah", whom he referred to as one of his YFs. In one post he even joked that he would like to explain sex to his nephew, especially if it was "hands-on". Hodges also enjoyed verbal sparring on the message boards and offering advice to others on how to find a YF for themselves.
Hodge's case is still pending. We will update this article when new information becomes available.
*Note: Due to his having turned state's evidence, the profile belonging to Hodge's friend has been removed from this site, at the request of, and out of courtesy to, law enforcement handling the case.
In a poll taken regarding little boy's penises:
When asked which parts of a boy he would NOT kiss, Hodges replied:
When asked to write a letter to his 10-year-old self, Hodges wrote, in part:
- We noticed JagDawg on several pedo sites. One of the posts on BLN was authored by Steven Jones, who welcomed Hodges under the screen name "Buddy Christ" and stated that he had met him in person. In a reply to another member who welcomed him, he stated that the poster probably knew him from another site on which he used the screen name JagDawg.
- From JagDawg's posts on BLISS, we were able learn that he lived in Georgia, attended the University of Georgia, and that he had met other pedophiles in the area. At times, children were involved in those meetings. Through his posts, we were also able to link him to the Buddy Christ screen name.
- At the same time we were investigating JagDawg/Buddy Christ, we received a tip from someone stating that Buddy Christ was Dale Erwin Hodges of Atlanta, GA and that he was grooming a little boy named Micah and possibly another child named Eli.
- In a post made by another pedophile who met JagDawg/Buddy Christ in person, he referred to him as "Dale". This matched the name used in the MySpace profile we had located, which was titled "TheDale".
- Searching through the screen names and other information we found, we located a personal web site belonging to Dale Erwin Hodges, hosted on the University of Georgia web servers. In his bio, he listed his date of birth as being May 11, 1982, his birthplace as Savannah, Georgia, the fact that he was a student at UGA who played trumpet in the band, and had a page filled with photos of little boys.
- Posts located on the BL.net site for JagDawg/Buddy Christ matched information on his location, his status as a student at UGA, his job as an usher at ball games, and his playing trumpet in the UGA Redcoat Band. To further his identification match, Dale Erwin Hodges posted a photo on his personal web site of his dream car, a red Jag with "TheDale" graphically inserted into the photo over the front license plate area of the car. This photo was an exact match of the signature image used by JagDawg on the pedophile message boards.
- Information regarding Hodges identity, which was turned over to ICE Agents in Atlanta, was further verified when he was arrested after meeting with another pedophile and handing over 2 DVDs filled with child pornography to undercover operatives.
