If true, this is a new low.
A former Bank of America VP who was arrested last month by the Delaware Child Predator Task Force is now facing federal charges of attempted online enticement of a minor.
He now faces a minimum mandatory 10 years in prison and up to life behind bars if convicted on the federal enticement charge.
Simmons was arrested in July when he arrived for a rendezvous at a Newark motel allegedly expecting to have sex with a 13-year-old girl after responding to an online ad on an adult social networking site and making arrangements with the girl’s father, prosecutors said.
However, there was no 13-year-old girl or father; both were creations of investigators looking for child predators, prosecutors said.
When Simmons arrived for his expected encounter on July 18, police said he had a laptop and camera with him. Investigators said Simmons admitted that he intended to engage in sexual activity with the 13-year-old and take photos of the encounter.
