The suspension of Laurence E. Nelson, a 44 year old YMCA worker in the state of Minnesota, started with an investigation by Ulster County Sheriff’s deputies.  The sheriff’s Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce alerted cops in Minnesota after Nelson solicited sex from an Ulster County deputy posing as a 14 year old girl in an online chat room.  Nelson was charged with his state’s equivalent of soliciting a child for sexual conduct over the internet and was suspended from his part-time job as an outreach worker for homeless youth.
