The Connecticut State Police Computer Crimes Unit concluded the investigation of a 58-year-old Brookfield man who allegedly used the Internet to engage in sexually explicit conversations with an 11-year-old juvenile female victim from another state.
A search warrant was obtained for the search and seizure of electronic evidence at the Obtuse Road South residence of William Stuart Meltzer. Electronic items were seized and a forensic examination was conducted on the equipment.
The examination was conducted to search for evidence of this crime and to locate other potential victims, according to state police Lt. Paul Vance.
“Meltzer was interviewed and evidence was obtained to determine that the accused posed as a juvenile online to engage in sexually explicit online relationships with other juveniles,” Vance said in a release Thursday. “After a complete examination of the accused’s computer equipment, an arrest warrant application was submitted to Superior Court for the arrest of the accused.“
Meltzer was placed under arrest, processed and released after he posted a $50,000 cash bond Wednesday at State Police Headquarters in Southbury.
Meltzer is scheduled to appear in Danbury Superior Court on Monday, January 7 on three counts of impairing the morals of a minor.
