Teacher arrested on child porn charges after police sting

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WIVB) — A middle school teacher from Spencerport was arrested Thursday and charged with several child porn related charges, including enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity.

Police say Charles Kane, 46, is in custody after police caught him in an alleged plan to engage in sexual activity with a 14-year-old. Police say Kane got caught up in a Rochester officer’s sting operation. Police say the officer responded to an ad on Craigslist under the guise of a 14-year-old girl. Police say Kane put up the advertisement which was looking for a “daddy/daughter. Love younger women” relationship.

Kane remained in contact with the officer throughout the month of March and allegedly tried to get the officer — who was posing as a child — to exchange photos with him. Police say the conversations frequently discussed engaging in sexual activities.

Police say Kane sent the following message to the person who he thought was a 14-year-old: “I could get a room, and I could sneak you there.”

Kane allegedly acknowledged he could be arrested for the scheme with the “girl” and asked her to keep their relationship quiet.

Police say he went to an agreed upon meeting at a theater in Webster on April 2, where police arrested him. Police say he was carrying a box of condoms at the time.

If convicted, Kane will spend a minimum of 10 years behind bars, a maximum of life and a fine of up to $250,000.
