A man from Berks County is under arrest and charged with being an internet child predator.

Randy Sailer, 59, of the 1100 block of Ironstone Drive in Boyertown, is charged with two counts of unlawful contact with a minor and one count of criminal use of a communications facility.

The Pennsylvania Attorney General's office said Sailer sent pornographic videos and used internet chat rooms to sexually proposition a person he thought was a 13-year-old girl.

In reality, the "girl" was an undercover agent from the Office's Child Predator Unit.

According to the criminal complaint, the defendant allegedly stated he was looking for a "playmate" interested in "fooling around" and expressed a desire to meet the girl for sex.

The charges are third degree felonies, each punishable by up to 7 years in prison and $15,000 in fines.

He has a preliminary hearing scheduled for December 7th in Boyertown.

Sailer is now free on $75,000 bail.
