ASHWAUBENON, WI (WTAQ) - A Manitowoc man is arrested Monday morning after he was caught trying to meet up with an underage girl in Ashwaubenon.
According to Ashwaubenon Public Safety, investigators were engaged in an online conversation with James Nadeau Sr. for about a week. Officers replied to an online ad he allegedly had looking for sex.
Nadeau agreed to meet with whom he thought was a 15-year-old girl at an Ashwaubenon restaurant. But when he arrived to pick up the girl, officers swooped in.
Charges being recommended are child enticement and use of a computer to facilitate a sex crime. Nadeau is due to appear in court Tuesday.
This arrest is part of the agency's ongoing effort to combat internet crimes against children.
