WHITEHALL TWP., Pennsylvania (WPVI) -- A pediatrician from Pennsylvania stands accused of sending sexually explicit messages to a minor in New Jersey.

Dr. Moshe Markowitz has an office in Whitehall Township, Pa.

Court records say the 47-year-old met a girl on the chat app Omegle.

Then, using the alias Steven Jones, he allegedly engaged in sexually explicit conversations over the messaging app Discord.

The girl's friend alerted a school resource officer at their high school in Warren County, New Jersey.
