An officer with the Fall River (WI) Police Department reportedly posed as a 15-year-old girl in an online forum and subsequently arrested a 57-year-old man after the subject made sexual overtures.
According to WisconsinNews.com, Officer Robin Messer posed as a young girl on a classifieds website as part of an undercover operation late last week. He posted an ad on the website with the subject line "First time on here."
Police documents indicate that Dale Konkol replied and engaged in an explicit conversation and sought to meet the "girl" in a local park.
Konkol faces 40 years in prison and $100,000 in fines if convicted of the charge.
