According to a release from the Justice Department, O’Hara responded to a public message on a social networking website and then communicated with an undercover law enforcement officer who he believed to be a parent and 10-year-old daughter.  O’Hara was arrested after he showed up at a house on August 5 of last year expecting to engage in sex acts with the girl, after promising her gifts if she engaged in sex acts with him.
