Andrew J. Myers, 34, of Whitinsville, Mass. allegedly used Skype to coax the boy into exposing and touching himself through a webcam.
A 40-page federal-criminal affidavit reviewed by 9Wants to Know describes how the boy's mother in Larimer County, Colo. discovered chat logs on her son's computer in July.
The Larimer County Sheriff's Department assisted federal agents in the investigation that included subpoenaed chat logs from Skype and an email account allegedly used by Myers' to download child pornography.
In the affidavit, investigators also reveal Myers is an attorney and a substitute teacher who taught at a middle school for the past year in Massachusetts.
In one of the online chats with the boy, the affidavit quotes Myers as saying, "an older guy like me being sexually attracted to younger boys can be pretty off-setting to most people."
Myers is expected in federal court on Thursday for a detention hearing.
