Former foster dad targeted `over 100’ vulnerable girls online

Steven Orloff, 48, connected with “several hundred” girls online, all of them between the ages of 11 and 15, and tried soliciting “over 100, easily” into performing sexual acts on a live webcam — all while posing as a 14-year-old boy, federal authorities said in U.S. District Court in Boston.
