Ex-AC firefighter convicted in child luring case
MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) - April 8, 2012 (WPVI) -- A former Atlantic City firefighter accused of trying to have a sex with an online acquaintance he thought was a 14-year-old girl has been convicted on several charges.
William Case faces several years in prison after being recently convicted in a nonjury trial.
The 29-year-old Galloway Township man was arrested in September 2008 when he arrived for a meeting with the teen. He then learned he had been chatting with an Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office detective.
Case said he only intended to speak with the girl, not have sex with her. And his lawyer noted that Case didn't have any items that indicated sexual activity was planned.
But the judge found Case guilty of attempted criminal sexual contact, along with several counts of attempted luring and attempted child endangerment.
