He was convicted of a felony in 1995 for filming himself having sex with a 15-year-old girl when he was 25. 

Yesterday, news of Trump's two dating sites, Trump.Dating and TrumpSingles, made headlines when it was (unsurprisingly) revealed that Trump.Dating allows married people to join but not gay people. Now, it's in the news for another reason: the face of the man on the site's homepage is that of convicted child molester Barrett Riddleberger.

Riddleberger appears on the homepage with his wife, Jodi--they're a couple from North Carolina. He was convicted of a felony in 1995 for filming himself having sex with a 15-year-old girl when he was 25.

According to WRAL News: "Riddleberger's past includes a felony conviction for taking indecent liberties with a child in in 1995. The charge stemmed from his videotaping himself having sex with a 15-year-old girl when he was 25."

While it's not quite clear who personally created the dating site, WRAL reports that Sean McGrossier has been named in blog posts at the person behind the page. It appears that Riddleberger's photo is no longer on the home page in the wake of this news.
