A seven month investigation culminated in an arrest after a 61-year old man travelled from Plattsburg to meet a mother and her two daughters. The defendant had arranged with the mother and her daughters (aged 11 and 12) to have sex with the children when they met.
The mother was actually an undercover NYSP ICAC investigator. The defendant brought condoms, lubricant and sex toys to the meet.
Subsequent to the meeting search warrants were executed at defendant’s residence, real estate office, the hotel room of the meeting and the vehicle driven to the meet. The defendant, a former assemblyman, was committed to the Albany County Jail.
On December 24, 2008 the defendant plead guilty to online enticement in federal court and is awaiting sentencing.
