A popular tech reporter who wrote about Microsoft was arrested for allegedly soliciting sex with children online, according to a complaint filed in May.

Peter Bright sought to molest a 7- and 9-year-old and was later arrested after meeting with an undercover agent to facilitate the action, the federal complaint alleges. Bright, who formerly worked for tech outlet Ars Technica, claimed to be in a sexual relationship with an 11-year-old.

The article goes on to state the following:

An undercover FBI special agent contacted Bright in April on KinkD, a social media fetish platform, according to the document, which was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The agent informed Bright that she had a 7-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son. He reportedly discussed the possibility of molesting the 7-year-old.

The complaint alleges that Bright, who is currently being held without bail, discussed ways of training the children. “I’m thinking maybe something involving foreskin is the way to start,” he allegedly told the agent. Bright also claimed to have molested an 11-year-old girl, the complaint alleges.

“I have a girl I’ve been teaching off and on for a couple of months now,” he reportedly wrote. “But she’s in the Bronx, which makes the logistics much harder.”
