Police sergeant caught in FBI child porn sting

Date: February 28, 2006

A state police sergeant tried to seduce someone he thought was a 14-year-old boy over the Internet, offering to be a sexual tutor in an explicit seven-month chat room courtship, according to a federal affidavit made public Monday.

Sgt. Brian O'Hare, of Lancaster, appeared briefly Monday in U.S. District Court in Boston where his brother, Joseph O'Hare, signed a $50,000 unsecured bond for his release.

The FBI arrested O'Hare Friday at a Medford mall where he had arranged to meet the "teen," who was really an undercover agent, according to agency spokeswoman Gail A. Marcinkiewicz. He faces charges of coercion and enticement of a minor under 18 years old to engage in prostitution or sexual activity.

The federal affidavit released Monday was for a search warrant for O'Hare's computer. It described how the undercover FBI agent posed as the 14-year-old in a chat room dubbed "SCHOOLBOIS SHOWERSM4."

Investigators allege that O'Hare, using the screen name Ranger1777, made unsolicited contact with the person he thought was a freshman in high school and offered to teach him about sex.

The pair allegedly exchanged photographs of each other, shared fantasies and talked about meeting for a tryst.
