A Monroe County psychiatrist is facing sex charges.

Police say 43-year-old Michael Kessler used a fake Facebook profile to impersonate a 14-year-old boy and contacted a 13-year-old boy.

Police say the boy's mother caught on to the profile and called the cops.

Investigators say Kessler asked an undercover detective, posing as a teenage boy, for sex and sent him pornographic images.

Police also say Kessler who lives in Barrett Township once had a practice in Smithfield Township.
