RACINE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) — A 33-year-old man has been arrested in Racine County for allegedly attempting to meet with a child for sex.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation Milwaukee Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force arrested Kyle Kurka from Waukesha for allegedly attempting to meet with a child for sexual activity.
In a press release from the Racine County Sheriff’s Office on Monday, Oct. 24, officials report that Kurka had been in contact with a child for several weeks, allegedly grooming the child by offering gifts and drugs.
He was then taken into custody and interviewed, reportedly admitting that he traveled from Waukesha County to “perform sex acts on the child.”
Two charges have been forwarded to the Racine County District Attorney’s Office, including child enticement as well as attempted sexual intercourse with a child aged 16 or older.
Sheriff Schmaling had strong words to share in the office’s press release, saying, “The Sheriff’s Office is proud to partner with the FBI to capture this sickening pedophile who was attempting to victimize a child. Although these investigations can be challenging and labor intensive, we stand ready to protect the innocence of children.”
