Pennsylvania man charged with online sex with children

KINGSTON, LUCERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A Monroe County man is accused of arranging a meeting with a 15-year-old boy for sex.

According to the Kingston Police Department, Patrick M. Maranuk, 36, of Kunkletown, began speaking online with a cooperating witness (CW) posing as a 15-year-old boy.

Investigators explained the two were chatting up Grinder, where Maranuk originally said the CW was too young, saying, “Sorry mate. I’m not going to jail. You could howl a wolf in 10 years and I’ll go to jail.”

According to court documents, Maranuk continued to speak to the CW and sent nude photos of his genitals.

Eventually, police said the two agreed to meet in Kingston rather than Maranuk being confronted by officers who found a packet of condoms in his center console.

Maranuk was charged with inciting involuntary deviant sex, attempted unlawful contact with a minor and criminal use of a communications facility.

Maranuk was being held at Luzerne County Correctional Facility on $50,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for January 25.
