Atchison, 53, of Gulf Breeze, Fla., an assistant U.S. Attorney in Florida's northern district, is expected to appear again in court for a detention hearing on Tuesday.This charming fella was arrested over the weekend when he arrived at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after conversing with a sheriff's deputy posing online as "a mother who was interested in finding someone to have sex with her children."
According to the complaint, Atchison reassured the sheriff's deputy who was posing as the child's mother that he would not hurt the 5-year-old because he goes "slow and easy," and "I've done it plenty."
