An Islip man was arrested by the FBI Thursday night on charges he attempted to arrange a sexual liaison with a 10-year-old boy.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office said that Kevin Will, 56, engaged in conversation in the “LongIslandDLMen Only” room of the chat app Kik. Will began chatting with an FBI agent who, posing as the father of a 10-year-old boy, said he and his son were going to visit Long Island and were looking for things to do. Will privately messaged the agent and said he would like to have sex with the boy, and the agent said he would like to observe the act, the prosecutor’s office said. Will and the agent arranged to meet at a coffee shop in Farmingdale, and then from there, proceeded separately to a hotel in Melville where the boy supposedly was staying.
Will was arrested as he approached the hotel room where the boy was supposed to be, and was carrying condoms, lubricants, an XBox Live Gold giftcard, whisky, a powdery substance agents believe was cocaine and women’s underwear.
The prosecutor’s office said that Will, at the point of arrest, said, “I messed up. I made a terrible mistake.”
He was accused of trying to entice a child under the age of 18 for sexual activity.
Update: The prosecutor’s office said that over the government’s objection, Magistrate Judge Anne Shields set bail for Will in the amount of $1.5 million, to be partially secured by the defendant’s two houses in Islip and Commack, with home confinement and electronic monitoring. He is not to have access to any internet devices.2021.04.09 - Will Complaint
