A Tallahassee mother red-flagged a chat on her daughter's Ipod and police wound up arresting the man on the other end.

Douglas Kersey is accused of transmitting harmful material to a minor.

Arrest papers say the 11 year old's mother discovered the chat and agreed to let police pose as the young girl on line.

Officers say Kersey requested a photo of the girl and had two sexually explicit conversations with the undercover officer.

When police searched Kersey's home in Tampa, arrest papers say, they found evidence of other chats and pictures of other girls between 10 and 15 years old.
