Doyle, 55, is charged with seven counts of use of a computer to seduce a child
Doyle, 55, is charged with seven counts of use of a computer to seduce a child and 16 counts of transmission of harmful material to a minor in a sting conducted by the Sheriff's Department in Polk County, Florida. Doyle has confessed to police and agreed to waive extradition.
In a conversation with an undercover deputy, Doyle encouraged her to buy a web camera and send graphic images of herself to him. Doyle also sent non pornographic pictures of himself and hardcore pornographic videos.
While some have wondered why a ranking member of the Homeland Security official in Homeland Security could be so easily suckered, the Public Affairs department of DHS does not have the best track record. Airport and Port security are still considered a joke and still recovering from the aftermath of hurricane Katrina, social engineers have still not arrived to rebuild the President's reputation. Short of being masterminds, the Office of Public Affairs at DHS may not even have anyone capable of playing the game Mastermind, and even Candyland may be questionable.
The most puzzling aspect of this case is the fact that an administration official was actually interested in girls.
