Former Cold Spring Public Official And Teacher Arrested For Attempted Child Enticement

–Press release courtesy of Department of Justice, U.S. Attorney’s Office, Southern District of New York–

Geoffrey S. Berman, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, William F. Sweeney Jr., the Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Field Office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), and Robert L. Langley Jr., the Putnam County Sheriff, announced the arrest of CHARLES HUSTIS for attempted enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity. HUSTIS was arrested today and presented before United States Judge Lisa Margaret Smith.

U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: “As alleged, Charles Hustis used his social media account in an attempt to persuade an innocent minor victim to meet with him and perform sexual acts. Sexualizing and preying on minors is unconscionable. Our Office will continue to work with our law enforcement partners at all levels of government to keep our children safe and stop those who seek to take advantage of them.”

FBI Assistant Director William F. Sweeney Jr. said: “Predators who use their access to children for their own sexual gratification are a parent’s worst fear come true, and their actions can cause detrimental impacts on the victims. I want to thank the agents and detectives who worked this case for the speed with which they acted once they had the information regarding Mr. Hustis’s position in a school. If anyone in the community believes their child may have been a victim, we ask for them to call us at 1-800-CALL-FBI.”

Happy Hannahversary

K9 Hannah just celebrated a milestone… Her first “Hannahversary” with her handler, Investigator Hyla! So we threw a little party, with yellow cupcakes for our favorite #yellowlab. Who knew Hannah likes lemons? The #putnamsheriffNY received Hannah as a gift from Monika and Joseph Stilwell who have been most generous to the PCSO over the years. We are grateful for their continued support and for Hannah. #putnamcountyNY #policedog #workingdog #electronicdetectionk9 #thenosethatknows
