According to South Carolina authorities, a man who wanted to enslave and eat a child has been sentenced to probation.
Justin Teeter Bensing, 36, pleaded guilty to two counts of criminal solicitation of a minor and was sentenced 10 years in prison. The sentence was then suspended to five years of probation.
The Greenville County Clerk of Court’s Office says that Bensing was diagnosed with autism and considered low risk. Bensing had been accused of soliciting an undercover officer he thought was a girl. Bensing’s attorney James Brehm said that the cannibalism comments were Bensing joking with someone else and unrelated to the investigation.
