Police arrest camp worker for allegedly soliciting teen for sex

Posted: Updated:

Police say they have arrested a Pomona camp worker for soliciting a teenager for sex over the Internet.

According to authorities, 62-year-old Howard Hochman arranged a meeting online with a 15-year-old. They say he was taken into custody when he showed up to meet the girl, who was actually an undercover investigator from the Westchester County District Attorney's Office.

Hochman works as the transportation coordinator for Camp Ramaquois. Officials there say they are contacting parents, but have had no indication that Hochman engaged in improper conduct with campers.

Hochman has been fired from the camp and faces up to four years behind bars if convicted.
