Highland Falls grandpa busted in online sex sting
A Highland Falls grandfather who works at Indian Point was busted by police on Long Island in an Internet sex sting. Mark Gettleman, 58, was arrested last month on charges he sent naked pictures of himself and exposed himself to a person he thought was a 13-year-old Long Island girl. That ?teenage girl? was actually a Nassau County detective involved in an undercover Internet sting.
Police say Gettleman posted photos of himself with a motorcycle and used the screen name "Mr. Harleyman" in online chats. Authorities say Gettleman exchanged in sexually graphic conversations with the undercover detective. Gettleman also allegedly used a Web cam to broadcast himself masturbating. Highland Falls Detective John Might says his department was glad to help Nassau police make the arrest. A spokesperson for Indian Point says Gettleman was suspended from his job after his arrest and his work computer is also being checked.
