A Pennsylvania man whom police say traveled to Pennsauken because he planned to meet a 14-year-old for sex was arrested in a sting arranged by the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office (CCPO).

Forty-six-year-old Charles Amer of Warminster, Pennsylvania “left work still dressed in his Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) uniform” February 16, according to a CCPO press release.

Amer allegedly texted sexually explicit messages to an undercover officer with the CCPO High-Tech Crimes Unit who was posing as a 14-year-old girl.

The CCPO alleged that Amer had planned to pick the girl up and take her to a Pennsylvania hotel for sex.

He was arrested and charged with second-degree child luring, attempted sexual assault, attempted criminal sexual contact, and attempted endangering the welfare of a child. Amer was released pending a court date.

All persons charged with a crime are presumed innocent unless and until convicted in a court of law. An arrest is not a conviction.
