Authorities said 40-year-old Mark Astalos thought he was meeting up with a 14-year-old girl for sex in Harrison Township last week.¬†But when he arrived, he was arrested by Macomb County Sheriff’s deputies and charged Friday with possession of child pornography and using a computer to commit a crime.

Astalos, who earns about $50,000 a year, believed he was texting and e-mailing the girl’s mother to set up a sexual encounter and even sent a photo of himself in an EMS uniform, the sheriff’s office said.

Astalos was placed on unpaid leave pending the outcome of the criminal case.
