NEW YORK (AP) — A federal investigator has been charged with sending sexually explicit images to an undercover officer posing as a 14-year-old boy.
Frederick Scheinin faces federal counts of attempted production of child pornography and attempted enticement of a minor.
A message was sent to his defense attorney seeking comment. Scheinin worked as a diversion investigator for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration in New York.
Authorities said he sent sexually explicit images to an agent posing as a 14-year-old boy.
They say he also tried to arrange a meeting to have sex with the boy.
