Man convicted of trying to entice girl for sex in Saratoga Springs

A Pennsylvania man who went to Congress Park in Saratoga Springs to meet what he thought was a teena

A Pennsylvania man who went to Congress Park in Saratoga Springs to meet what he thought was a teenage girl he’d met online was convicted today of felony attempted enticement of a minor.

William Keith Jamieson, 52, of Lancaster, Pa., was found guilty by a jury after a trial in U.S. District Court in Albany.

He now faces between 10 years and life in prison when he is sentenced in November, plus a period of supervised release ranging from five years to lifetime; a fine of up to $250,000; and mandatory registration as a sex offender.

Jamieson was arrested July 2, 2012, in Congress Park, where he had traveled to meet a 14-year-old girl, “Kara,” with whom he had been chatting online for four and a half months. A female Saratoga Springs police officer working undercover posed as Kara online in a “dad&daughtersex” chat room and chatted with Jamieson.

Jamieson told the undercover officer that he would come to Saratoga Springs, rent a motel room and have sex with her, even though the officer who posed as the girl repeatedly told him she was 14, authorities said.

They said Jamieson rented a room near Congress Park where police later found condoms, computer equipment, a camera and a gift of a bottle of nail polish for the girl.
