SARATOGA SPRINGS – A Rochester man admits he tried to lure an underage girl to a hotel room to make a sex tape.

John Lawrence Dooley was arrested in May 2012 in Saratoga Springs.

The 56-year-old travelled from Rochester to meet a 15 year old girl named “Kara” that he met in a Yahoo! chat room.

“Kara” was actually an undercover Saratoga Springs Police Investigator.

Dooley made plans with “Kara” to rent a motel room and make a sex tape together.

He was arrested after checking into his motel room with alcohol, cameras and lingerie for “Kara”.

Dooley is a registered level III sex offender.

He faces 45 years to life in prison when he is sentenced in February.
