PERV’S UGLY END (New York man rams truck on ‘pleasure’ trip with teen)
Adam Mauro, a 27 year old suspected sex offender from New York traveling with a runaway 14 year old boy, intentionally smashed a stolen SUV into a tractor-trailer on a South Carolina highway when he couldn't shake pursuing police. The crash Thursday killed Mauro, of Pelham in Westchester County, and hurled the Connecticut teen out of the vehicle along Interstate 95. He is expected to survive. Mauro was facing three counts of child endangerment and three counts of sexual abuse in two separate cases. He was first arrested in August 2000, after investigators found child pornography on his home computer. He pleaded guilty and got three years' probation. He was also charged in 2004 with violating an order of protection by driving past the house of an underage boy he was accused of molesting.
