IDAHO FALLS — Over the past two decades, Chris Hansen’s investigations have led to hundreds of would-be sex criminals being stopped in their tracks.
Hansen is best-known for his role on ‘To Catch a Predator,’ one of NBC’s most-watched programs in the mid-2000s. The journalist went undercover with police and confronted men trolling online chat rooms hoping to meet teenagers for sex.
After 500 arrests and hundreds of millions of video views, men continue to try to meet children online and Hansen continues to go after them.
