BALTIMORE (WJZ) — A local lawyer and owner of a children’s entertainment company has been arrested in Florida on child sex charges.

 Howard Scott Kalin, 47, was arrested Monday afternoon, caught in an undercover cyber sting.

Undercover detectives were contacted by Kalin in January 2011 through online chatting services. During that time, Kalin identified himself under his alias name of “Ben Aldridge.” Since then, cyber crimes undercover detectives posing simultaneously as a 14-year-old boy and as a caregiver communicated with Kalin numerous times online. Detectives say he flew to Lake County, Fla. to have sex with whom he thought was the 14-year-old boy.

Kalin lives in Essex and owns “Funhouse Entertainment” where he advertises himself as a magician.

He’s being held without bond.
