A celebrity instructor from Gastonia has just been arrested for soliciting a 14-year-old child online to have sex.
36-year-old Michael Robert Geressy, also known as “Doc Geressy”, was the target of a sting operation that involved detectives posing as a 14-year-old child on social media.
According to police, Geressy planned to meet with the child for sexual activity in Lincolnton, NC. Geressy was immediately arrested by detectives when he arrived at the location discussed by the undercover detectives on social media.
Geressy is known as a celebrity impersonator, most famous for his costume and replica vehicles from the movies “Ghostbusters” and “Blues Brothers”.
Geressy was charged with a felony count of soliciting a child for an unlawful sex act by computer and appearing to meet the child. His first court appearance will be this coming Monday.
