According to state investigators, Kaiser posted an advertisement on Craigslist seeking a discreet meeting with a young male under 21. When a person who Kaiser believed was a 13-year-old boy responded to the ad, Kaiser sexually propositioned the child and arranged to meet him in Austin. The boy was actually an undercover police officer with the Cyber Crimes Unit. When Kaiser arrived at the meeting location, Cyber Crimes Unit police officers arrested him and confiscated both of his cell phones for forensic analysis. Cyber Crimes Unit investigators also conducted a search of Kaiser’s hotel room and confiscated the defendant’s laptop computer.
Kaiser faces a third-degree felony count of online solicitation of a minor. He remains in Travis County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond. If convicted, Kaiser faces two to 10 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
