Prosecutors: Stratford dentist arrested in online sex sting

Posted: Updated:

Prosecutors say a Stratford dentist is behind bars after being caught in an online sex sting.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Scott Cohen, 39, began a social media relationship with someone he thought was a 15-year-old girl.

It says he sent sexually explicit images of himself and asked her to have sex with him.

Prosecutors say Cohen then offered to reschedule patients in order to meet at the Stratford train station.

Police were waiting for him when he got there.
