Third man charged after police pedophile sting

August 14, 2012 19:02

The Central District Attorney charged a 36-year-old man with multiple counts of sodomy against a 13-year-old boy on Tuesday, in what was the third indictment filed so far following a massive police sting operation targeting child sex offenders.

The defendant, named only as Gimmel in the indictment, cannot be identified because of a gag order.

Gimmel was remanded in custody two weeks ago as part of a wave of arrests following the police sting, during which a police agent posing as a 12-year-old child made contact with him.

In addition to charges of sodomy against a minor aged under 14 and under 16, Gimmel is charged with  sexual harassment and attempted sexual harassment of a minor under 15.
