Washington Times Employee Caught in Sex Sting

NEW YORK — Local police today charged the director of human resources at The Washington Times with one count of attempting to entice a minor on the Internet, the newspaper reported.

Randall Casseday, 53, was arrested late yesterday in Northeast Washignton, D.C., where police said he had arranged to meet who he thought was a 13-year-old girl.

He had actually exchanged Internet messages and photographs with a male police officer posing as a girl, the newspaper related, adding, “The conversation included discussion of an explicit sexual nature.”
