Baker worked at the camp for seven years, so there's a chance he approached or tried to entice other teens.
A man from Georgia who worked at a camp operated by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Rochester was arrested and charged after police say he tried to entice a teenager to have sex with him.
Gates Police say 24-year-old Jaiquise Baker, the director of evening services at the camp on Genesee Street in Rochester, attempted to entice a 15-year-old camper to engage in a sexual act.
"Fortunately, these types of incidences are few and far between but it serves as a important wake up call for parents to keep their eyes on the kids especially online because it's the age of technology and you never know who's on the other line," explained Sgt. James Coughlin, Gates Police Department.
Baker was arrested Tuesday and charged with felony attempted disseminating indecent materials to a minor. He was arraigned and remanded to the Monroe County Jail on $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 bond.
The Boys & Girls Clubs of Rochester issued the following the statement following Baker's arrest:
“The safety of our children is paramount to the parents, staff and board of directors of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Rochester. When we learned that a volunteer had sent a series of inappropriate text messages to a child we immediately contacted the District Attorney’s office who referred the matter to Gates Police Department and thankfully the perpetrator has been arrested. We take the protection of our children very seriously and to that end we will work with the various members of law enforcement until this matter is concluded. We stand with the brave and courageous victim of these inappropriate text messages and family and will support them in every way necessary.”
Messenger Post's news partner, News10NBC was told that Baker has no other criminal record but Baker worked at the camp for seven years so there is a chance he potentially approached or tried to entice other teens.
