Chris Ortloff, state parole board commissioner, was arrested for allegedly arranging to have sex with 11- and 12-year-old girls. The U.S. Attorney's office said Ortloff had been chatting with the girls' "mother" (an undercover state police investigator) online since June and arranged to meet the girls at an Albany hotel on Monday. According to the Times-Union, when the police went to to the hotel room, the 61-year-old father of two was "buck naked" and had "condoms, lubricants, sex toys and a camera." His lawyer suggested his defense may include entrapment and that his client didn't know the girls were underage. And when he was Plattsburgh's assemblyman, Ortloff supported Megan's Law, "Our government must do more to keep dangerous, sexually violent predators away from children and women."
