Hamilton -- Several South Georgia men arrested in a sexual predator sting, make their debut on national television tonight.  Dateline NBC's "To Catch a Predator" went undercover in rural Georgia in July and caught 20 men trying to arrange sex with children.

The men shuffled into court in Harris County, Georgia last month after getting caught using the internet to set up sexual encounters with children. It's a moment these guys will never forget, and it's a moment that you can watch tonight.

In all, 20 men showed up at a house in rural Harris County, four of them from right here in our viewing area.  Thirty-one year old Jacob Cason, a diesel mechanic from Nashville, Georgia who was still in jail the day we went to court, is now out of jail. He posted thirty-three thousand dollars bond August 2nd.

Cason admitted in court that he chatted on the internet with who he thought was a 13 year old girl, masturbated for her on a webcam, then drove three and a half hours to meet her.  Instead, he met Dateline's NBC's Chris Hansen.

All three of the other South Georgians arrested are also out of jail.

Twenty-five year old John Adam Daniels, a cabinet shop worker from Bainbridge posted 44-thousand dollars bond July 28th.

Thirty-five year old Marvin Harrison Smith, a former Waffle House employee in Tifton, posted 38-thousand dollars bond July 28th.

Twenty-four year old Reymundo Anguiano, unemployed and living on Whispering Pines Road in Albany, posted 44-thousand, 288 dollars bond July 23rd.

Also in the group were a computer software worker from Alpharetta, an Iraqi war veteran from Ft. Stewart, a youth minister and a school teacher.

They are among the nearly two dozen men now awaiting trial on child sex charges and now, just hours from their national television debuts. 

 "DatelineNetCrime: To Catch a Predator" airs right here on WALB and NBC tonight at 8, Friday, Sept. 22nd at 9 p.m., Friday, Sept. 29th at 9 p.m. and Friday, Oct. 6th at 9 p.m.
