PORTSMOUTH, NH (CBS) – A man who worked in the I.T. Department at Portsmouth, New Hampshire School Department is facing charges for allegedly soliciting an underage girl online.
A tipster contacted officers about 34-year-old Ken Kimber earlier this month. After an investigation, police arrested Kimber on Friday and charged him with five felony counts of indecent exposure and three felony counts of certain uses of a computer prohibited.
