Legault had been in contact with the teenager since mid July after they initially met on Omegle, a free online and anonymous text and video chat tool, according to the affidavit. Users on the site are referred to as “you” and “stranger.” The teen and Legault began using Google Hangouts the first day they began speaking.
The teen told authorities she gave Legault her real age and that he claimed to be 22, but she thought he was older.
According to authorities, Legault would ask the teen to perform sexual acts on video for him and expressed multiple times through email wanting to have sexual intercourse with her.
After a month of the email and video exchanges, Legault scheduled an August 4 to Atlanta to meet up with the teen, authorities said. A weather delay during a layover in Buffalo, New York led Legault to cancel his plans and reschedule his arrival for Aug. 11.
Legault was arrested after his arrival on a flight from Toronto, Emmett said.
