WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A police officer from a mid-Missouri town drove to Wentzville in order to have sex with a 14-year-old girl and her mother, federal authorities say.
Clint Baer, 41, an officer with the Centralia, Mo. Police Department is charged with using interstate commerce for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.
In March, prosecutors say Baer contacted someone he thought was the 14-year-old’s mother on a social networking website. The person he contacted was actually an undercover FBI agent.
Over the course of several months, authorities say he exchanged sexually detailed and explicit texts and phone calls with the undercover agent. He allegedly stated his desire to have sex with the mother and the 14-year-old.
Monday, authorities say Baer traveled from Centralia to Wentzville, Mo. to have sex with the teen and her mother. He was arrested in Wentzville.
