A north-central Iowa man is charged with on-line sexual enticement after allegedly sending a live video stream of himself to undercover authorities in Nebraska. Paul Heyer is the utilities superintendent for the city of Titonka.
Heyer was arrested on Monday after Nebraska authorities say he initiated an on-line conversation with someone who he believed was a 15-year-old girl. It was actually a detective with LaVista Internet Crimes Against Children, a Sarpy County, Nebraska, organization. Police allege that Heyer solicited the person for sexual favors over the past two months.
Authorities say they showed up at Heyer’s home while he was on-line with another undercover officer when a detective knocked on his door. Heyer was taken to the Kossuth County Jail in Algona waiting to be extradited to Nebraska.
