Ex-EBR sheriff's detective gets 30 years for internet soliciation
A retired homicide detective from Baton Rouge has been sentenced to the maximum 30 years in federal prison for using the internet to try to solicit sex from what he thought was a 14-year-old girl.
U.S. District Judge Patricia Minaldi told Karl D. Kretser, 43, that his actions were despicable, especially since he used his own daughter's online information to get in touch with someone he thought was another child.
"The Internet has created a new breed of predator. You are that new breed,"
Kretser was arrested at Cortana Mall, where he was head of security and where he had set up a meeting with the supposed child.
"Kretser admitted that he had engaged in sexually explicit chat with the 'girl' and came to pick her up"
Even though this is one was a sting operation, a retired homicide detective that was head of security at a mall tries to meet with a 14-year-old and people are supposed to look up to police officers....
