Police say Abrams responded to a sex-related online ad last June. After a series of online conversations with undercover officers, police say Abrams drove up to Queensbury to have a sexual encounter with what he thought was a 14-year-old.

Abrams retired from the department of corrections after his arrest and will still receive his pension.
