, a 46-year-old college professor in California, is the other party named in sex crimes charges announced Thursday by St. Louis County Police involving a 13-month-old girl.
Kyle and Tessa Vanvlerah
, 20, of Ballwin, met on the Internet and arranged a sex rendez-vous involving Vanvlerah's daughter
Before the charges announced Thursday, Kyle already faced child porn allegations by the FBI. Kyle was arrested on March 15 at San Francisco International Airport
after getting off a plane from Austria.
That arrest, according to the SF

Virginia in December, when file sharing of graphic images of sexual
abuse of young children was traced to Kyle's home computer," says an FBI spokesman.
Vanvlerah is in custody at the St. Louis County Jail in Clayton, and
Kyle -- an
assistant professor of public affairs and administration
East Bay in San Francisco -- is in jail in San Francisco. While at Cal
State East Bay, Kyle serves "as editor of Social Problems Forum: The
SSSP Newsletter-the official
