WEXFORD, Pa. - A Wexford man has been arrested for allegedly soliciting sex and then traveling to a hotel to meet whom he believed was an 11-year-old girl and her parents.
According to the criminal complaint, investigators responded to an ad they believe was posted by Daniel Schulties, 23. The ad title was "Looking to join an Incest Family.”
Over the course of several months, investigators said Schulties corresponded with the “father" and "daughter" via email and text messages describing the sexual acts he wished to perform when they met and expressing his desire to engage in a sexual relationship. In addition to the explicit messages, Schulties allegedly sent nude photos of himself to the girl and her parents.
Schulties was arrested on Saturday when investigators said he arrived at a Moon hotel to meet the family.
He is charged with one count of unlawful contact with a minor, one count of criminal attempt to commit rape of a child, one count of criminal attempt to commit involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, one count of unlawful contact with a minor, one count of criminal attempt to commit indecent assault and one count of criminal use of a communication facility.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for next week.
