Jericho attorney busted in online underage sex investigation

Police arrested a Jericho attorney Wednesday as part of an online underage sex investigation.

Prosecutors say 53-year-old Jan Kabas was planning to meet up with a 13-year-old girl he met on the Internet, but instead met with an undercover police officer. According to investigators, the married father had been having sexually explicit chats with the undercover agent posing as a young teenage girl.

Kabas was arraigned in Hempstead and released on $10,000 bail. However, he was immediately arrested for violating terms of his bail in a separate federal bank fraud case.
