We're learning more about a Monroe County psychiatrist who's facing child sex charges.

The Pennsylvania Medical Board revoked Michael Kessler's license last July after he was jailed for lewd conduct in New Jersey.

Kessler was arrested last week.

Among the accusations, police say he tried to solicit sex online from a detective posing as a 13-year-old boy.

Previously, Kessler practiced in Smithfield Township.

Records show his medical license was revoked in New York for lying on job application forms about his involvement in lewdness cases in Massachusetts.
