PENNSAUKEN – A Pennsylvania EMT faces criminal charges after he allegedly traveled here expecting to engage in sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Charles Amer, 46, was arrested Feb. 16 after exchanging sexually explicit texts with a law enforcement officer posing as a young girl, the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office said Wednesday.

The Warminster man, who allegedly expected to take the girl to a hotel, was still wearing his EMT uniform when he arrived in South Jersey, the prosecutor’s office said.

Amer was charged with luring, attempted sexual assault and attempted endangering the welfare of a child. He has been released pending court proceedings, the prosecutor’s office said.

His arrest followed an investigation by the prosecutor's High-Tech Crimes Unit
and the Cherry Hill division of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations.
