On Sunday night, the Exeter community was surprised to see its English Department Chair, Dick Terrel, on national television. “I was sitting in the common room, watching Dateline NBC’s ‘To Catch a Predator,’ and then I saw Mr. T right on the screen! I wish I had TiVo!” Michelle Lee ’10 said excitedly. The popular reality show involves a sting operation aimed at catching child predators that use the internet to connect with underage girls. The show is hosted by Dateline’s Chris Hansen. On the show, Dateline works with a watchdog group, Perverted-Justice, to use the internet to attract potential predators. Dean Terrel, who acted as Perveted-Justice’s decoy teen, used the screen name ‘Lil’-T’. He was unable to be reached for comment.
