In a sting operating organized by the Boston Police Human Trafficking Division, a former Boston school teacher was arrested this past week on Massachusetts Sex Crimes Charges for allegedly attempting to solicit sex from what he thought was a teenager. He was charged with Enticing a Child Under Under 16 and Sexual Conduct for a Fee.
According to the Suffolk County District Attorney’s Office, the man allegedly solicited sex from what he thought was a 19 year old female. On the other end of the computer, though, undercover police officers were posing as a 15 year old girl. The man was arrested when he arrived at the Boston Park Plaza Hotel to meet the purported teenager. This was reportedly his 4th arrest involving a sex crime.
The Massachusetts Sex Crime of Enticement of a Child Under 16 is punishable by up to 5 years in state prison or up to 2.5 years in the House of Corrections. A conviction will also subject the offender to Sex Offender Registration.
In total, 5 persons were arrested last Thursday evening in connection with this sting operation by the Boston Police Department.
