Trenton man accused of flying across country for underage sex

A 38-year-old Trenton man has been arrested on accusations that he flew halfway across the country for the intended purpose of meeting what he thought was an underage girl for sex.

He has been charged with sex crimes.

The investigation that culminated in his arrest began in November after a 13-year-old girl allegedly accepted a friend request from the man on Facebook, notifying authorities after realizing that he was not somebody that she actually knew.

The man is said by authorities to have made inappropriate postings on her Facebook page. This prompted an undercover investigator posing as an underage teen girl to contact the man, who then is said to have sent the investigator sexually explicit messages.

The man, according to police reports, asked the supposed minor girl if they could meet and have sex. When the investigator appeared to agree, the man flew to another city where the girl supposedly lived and then went to a restaurant where he was to meet her. When he arrived, he was taken into custody. Charges pending include use of the internet for the sexual exploitation of a child and luring a child.

This man is like everyone else charged with a crime: entitled to a presumption of innocence and representation by an attorney who will defend his rights and freedom.

While the press enjoys attempting to try these cases on the pages of newspapers, the reality is that the suspect will get to present his side in court and that the court will weigh the evidence and render a verdict.
