Man arrested for sex act in front of webcam

MANATEE — Authorities say a 47-year-old Bradenton man was performing a sex act on himself in front of a Webcam, but turned the camera off after the person watching over the Internet said she was 14.

However, 20 minutes later, authorities say, Michael Seagraves again contacted the same Web account, calling on the teen to view his Webcam.

He did not know the girl was, in fact, an undercover investigator with the Florida Attorney General's CyberCrime Unit in Tampa, according to a report from the attorney general's office.

After the second contact from Seagraves, the Milton, Fla., detective posing as the teen accessed Seagraves' Webcam, and again Seagraves could be seen performing a sex act on himself.
