East Setauket Man's Supposed Meet-Up With 13-Year Old Foiled by Cops

Michael Ripp was arrested by police after he thought he was meeting a teenage girl for sex, police said.

New York State Police said a 62-year-old East Setauket man was about to meet what he thought was a 13-year-old girl in upstate New York for a sexual affair when instead, he was arrested by undercover police.

According to police, Michael Ripp had made plans to meet a girl "for the purpose of engaging in sexual conduct." However the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, the Attorney General’s Office, the State Police Computer Crimes Unit, and State Police units had tracked the meet-up and arrested Ripp on charges of attempted dissemination of indecent material to a minor, a felony, and attempted endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.

He was arraigned in an Albany court and held without bail. His next appearance is on Wednesday.

Police are asking anyone who may have information regarding inappropriate behavior by Ripp to contact State Police in Riverside, at 631-727-2727.
