The good news is that the methods used by police in Pennsylvania to carry out undercover sex stings seem to be working quite well. the bad news is that we know this because the chief of the Leechburg police appears to have tested them himself.

According to WPXI News, the police chief, who became well–known in the area after he lost an arm in a fireworks accident, had been chatting with the undercover officer since last September using the profile name “Kutecop4you.” He described himself as a “dominate male officer” who “seeks fun, discreet, sub playmate.”
The agent allegedly told Diebold several times he was chatting with a minor, but the police chief set up the meeting anyway after also sending what the news station said were “inappropriate images” and continuously “asking for sex.”
In a statement to police, Diebold admitted knowing that sexual contact with a 14–year–old was illegal, and he said his “life is totally over.”
He’s charged with unlawful contact with a minor and criminal attempt to commit involuntary deviate sexual intercourse.
