A Nelson Township man that drove to Ohio to have sex with two pre-teen girls pled guilty last week in a plea deal.
Herman Kamphuis, 43, pled guilty in the Federal Southern District Court of Ohio to coercion or enticement of a female over the Internet.
Kamphuis began talking to an undercover officer in a “parenting” Internet chatroom on February 2. The undercover agent was posing as the father of two girls, ages 6 and 11. The suspect allegedly turned the chat sexual, and asked about the features of the two girls. When the detective asked him what he was looking for, the suspect said he was looking to make a 25-year fantasy come true by having sex with the girls.
When Kamphuis arrived in Ohio on March 9 to have sex with the girls, he was arrested by the detective and the Franklin County, Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children task force. He had brought his computer with him, which had over 100 files of pornography involving children under 13.
Kamphuis could potentially receive up to life in prison for the crime.
