News fresh in from Pennsyltucky, the sleepy vacation area known as the Poconos.

Now the place of an on-line sex sting dragnet, one which has implicated the now -- whether convicted or not -- disgraced former weapons inspector and famous person, Scott Ritter.

This is just bad.

"Prosecutors and police said on Wednesday that Scott Ritter, a former chief United Nations weapons inspector, will face trial in Monroe County Court in March after police accused him of innapropriate contact over the Internet with what he thought was a 15-year-old girl," reports the Pocono Record.

"Ritter, 48, turned himself in to Barrett Township Police in November after he was charged with having a sexual conversation with a police officer posing as a 15-year-old girl and masturbating on a Web camera on Feb. 7, 2009.

"Ritter was not charged until November after police went through the time-consuming process of obtaining court orders for computer and cell phone records."

On-line, the criminal affidavit writes Ritter was "delmarm4fun," responding to a police officer posing as a 15-year-old girl.

"[Delmarm4fun] adjusted the camera and focused on his penis area, where he began to masturbate ... He then continued to masturbate on webcam ..." it reads.

Then he shot his wad, it informs. In clinical courtroom-ready language, though.

If convicted, Ritter could get up to seven years.

"Ritter faced similar online sexual charges in 2001 in New York, but he said in 2003 that those charges were made public to silence his Iraq war criticism," continued the Pocono newspaper. "The charges were dismissed."

Oh, no... there goes all the good that Scott Ritter ever tried to accomplish with the Iraq War.
