MARION, Ill. (KFVS) - A Williamson County man who identified himself as a federal prison guard now faces three federal charges after being accused of trying to solicit a minor online.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office charged 48-year-old Christopher David Emery on Tuesday.
According to court records, the arrest happened as Emery thought he was meeting a 14-year-old girl.
Those same records show Emery told the undercover agent posing as a minor that he worked at the Marion Federal Prison.
He’s charged with attempted enticement, soliciting an obscene image of a minor and attempting to transmit information about someone under 16.
