TSG: More on Conway hotel telephone “prankster”

The Smoking Gun continues its investigation of the scumbags who get their jollies convincing unsuspecting employees to vandalize the businesses where they work. This happened at a Conway motel not long ago, causing tens of thousands in damages. The latest is about a fine specimine of a human being from Texas.

As if the members of Pranknet couldn’t get creepier, The Smoking Gun has learned that one of the online cabal’s leading vandals was once convicted of raping a five-year-old girl in the bathroom of a Texas church. James Tyler Markle, 18, pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child and was sentenced in 2005 to a minimum two years in custody.

Markle tells the Lufkin, Texas newspaper he’s innocent.

On the MySpace page Markle apparently identifies himself as a 21-year-old 2008 Diboll High School graduate named “PrAnKsTeR04 PrankNET Pranker.” The page contains the same profile picture posted on his Facebook page, through which the newspaper contacted him on Wednesday by linking to a family member’s page.

“I am a pranker on PrankNET … come check us out,” the MySpace page formerly active at myspace.com/xxx_neverbroughtdown_xxx states.

Under one posted question on “Who I’d like to meet:” the answer is, “None really just one of the stupid that i Prank call.”
