The government said Wednesday that 43-year-old Herman Kamphuis of Cedar Springs met an investigator posing as the girls’ father in an online chat room. The government said Kamphuis told the investigator he wanted to have sex with a little girl to “make a 25 yr fantasy come true.”

The investigator told Kamphuis he could meet the girls in Ohio on March 9 and he was arrested when he arrived, according to authorities.

Federal Public Defender Steven Nolder said he and Kamphuis will review evidence of the alleged chats and determine how to proceed.

Kamphuis is being held without bond.
