Cortland man admits trying to meet child for sex in Cayuga County

When Domenick Krango drove to Aurelius last November, the 60-year-old said he wasn’t just planning to visit the Fingerlakes Mall — he was hoping to have sex with a 12-year-old girl he met on the internet.

Krango, of 13 North Cliff Road in Cortland, was arrested Nov. 11 and charged with three felonies: first-degree attempted rape, first-degree attempted criminal sex act and first-degree attempted disseminating indecent material to minors.

At the time, New York State Police said Krango was taken into custody before making any physical contact with the child. However, in court Thursday, Cayuga County District Attorney Jon Budelmann said there actually never was a child, as the person pretending to be a 12-year-old girl online was a state trooper.
