CHARGED: Muskego man accused of communicating with 15-year-old girl, who was actually a special agent

WAUKESHA COUNTY (WITI) -- A Muskego man is charged, accused of trying to meet and have sex with a 15-year-old girl, who was actually an agent with the Wisconsin Department of Justice.

55-year-old David Kozlowski of Muskego faces a felony charge of using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime.

A criminal complaint filed against Kozlowski says a Department of Justice special agent set up an undercover profile online -- posing as a 15-year-old girl, and that profile was contacted by Kozlowski beginning in April of 2014.

The complaint says Kozlowski identified himself as someone who installs glass -- saying he was trying to meet local women.

The special agent, posing as the 15-year-old girl, told Kozlowski that she is 14 years old, and will soon turn 15.

The complaint says after learning the girl's age, Kozlowski said she is young, but continued to speak with her -- telling her she is pretty based on her pictures and that she "has a nice shape."

During the conversation, Kozlowski is accused of telling the girl he has a bucket list that includes doing things with women -- saying he was hesitant to describe that further because the girl is so young. The conversation then involved discussion about past sexual experiences and what the child has done sexually, according to the complaint.

Eventually, the complaint says Kozlowski asked the girl whether she wanted to have sex with him -- and Kozlowski is accused of asking the girl how far she would go with him sexually.

The complaint accuses Kozlowski of asking the girl whether they could meet up that afternoon.

Eventually, the special agent posing as the teenage girl agrees to meet up with Kozlowski, and they make plans to meet. The complaint says Kozlowski didn't show for their meeting, but conversations online continued.

A second meeting was planned, but the complaint indicates that again, Kozlowski didn't show up.

Conversations continued online between Kozlowski and the special agent, posing as the teenager.

A third meeting was planned for late October. The complaint says Kozlowski agreed to meet at the Culver's restaurant on W. Sunset Drive in Waukesha. Kozlowski's vehicle was observed pulling into the strip mall near the restaurant, and a text message was sent asking how long the girl would be.

That's when the complaint says Kozlowski was confronted and arrested.

The complaint says Kozlowski was taken to the police department -- where he admitted he had been conversing with a child whom he believed to be 15 years old -- admitting that he had agreed to meet her. The complaint says he then claimed he wasn't actually going to meet the girl -- saying he had parked at the strip mall near Culver's.

Kozlowski told police he was "curious," and that's why he continued talking with the girl. The complaint says when asked what he would say to the girl's mother, Kozlowski told police he would apologize, because what he did was wrong.

If convicted on the use of a computer to facilitate a child sex crime charge, Kozlowski faces a maximum of 40 years in prison and/or a maximum of $100,000 in fines.
