Grand jury indicts N.Y. man for seeking sex with 14-year-old
STAFF WRITER A New York man is accused of traveling to Scranton in early 2015 to have sex with a person he believed was 14 years old.
On Tuesday, a federal grand jury indicted Charles J. Senke, 59, of Syracuse, on charges of travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct and online enticement stemming from the incident. Mr. Senke used the Internet to contact and persuade a person he believed to be a 14-year-old to engage in sexual conduct and then drove to Scranton to meet with the person, according to federal prosecutors. No further details were available.
The indictment is the result of an investigation by the FBI and the state office of attorney general. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle Olshefski is prosecuting the case.
The federal charges carry a sentence of up to life in prison. Contact the writer: email@example.com, @ClaytonOver on Twitter
