Regional News

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) — An eastern Missouri youth counselor has been charged with sending child pornography to an undercover officer.

Fifty-four-year-old Michael Kreitler, of Byrnes Mill, was charged Tuesday with one count of promoting child pornography. He is jailed on a $75,000 cash-only bond. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

Saint Louis County police said in a news release that he sent links to download hundreds of videos and images of child pornography to the undercover officer.

The release said his job as a counseling supervisor with Lutheran Family and Children’s Services had him in direct contact with children often, although no other victims are known.
