BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. (KYW Newsradio) — A Bucks County Planning Commission employee was caught sexting with who he thought was a teenager over the weekend. 

According to the criminal complaint, 46-year-old Kevin Sager was chatting with who he thought was a 14-year-old, but was actually an undercover agent with the Pennsylvania Attorney General’s Office.

After the agent told Sager he was 14, Sager asked him to send a nude photo, and then asked if they could meet up “in secret,” according to the complaint.

Around 12:30 Sunday morning, the complaint says Sager drove around the meeting site about eight times, eventually pulling in around 1 a.m. 

He was arrested, according to the affidavit, and he told investigators he was the person on the app communicating with who he thought was a child. 

The court documents say he knew he should have cut off the conversation, but he said curiosity of meeting up with a 14-year-old got the better of him. It’s also alleged he told investigators he knew the child was 14 when he sent a picture of himself.

Sager worked for Bucks County for 20 years. He has been suspended from his job as administrative assistant and bookkeeper for the Planning Commission.
