From the Daily News:
An MTA subway conductor was busted for setting up a liaison with a 14-year-old girl - who ended up being an undercover cop, authorities said.
Louis Velez, 31, wrapped up his shift Thursday and rushed to Queens to meet the girl he'd been sending sexually explicit Internet messages over the past week, prosecutors said.
Around 1:20 p.m. Thursday, Velez sent an instant message to the detective, saying he'd be off work at 3p.m. and could meet in Queens an hour later.
When Velez arrived on time for a supposed sexual encounter, he walked up to the female undercover, chatted briefly and then walked over to a gas station where prosecutors said he bought condoms.
Velez was being held yesterday on a $60,000 bail. He faces up to seven years in prison on charges that include attempted use of a child in a sexual performance and attempted endangerment of the welfare of a child.
