An assistant professor for radiology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston was arrested in July as part of an undercover ‘sting’ aimed at nabbing sexual predators online, according to KPRC Click2Houston.
Jay Lin, 40, was arrested July 31, and has been charged with online solicitation of a minor. His bond was set at $30,000, according to the report.
The Houston news outlet interviewed a few of Lin’s neighbors who expressed their shock.
“It's alarming. It's scary to think something this close to home can happen. That something could be going on behind closed doors that you don't know," neighbor Antonetta Russo said to the Texas news outlet.
The Texas Medical Board issued a statement on Monday, Aug. 20, temporarily suspending his medical license after “determining his continuation in the practice of medicine poses a continuing threat to public welfare.” The temporary suspension will remain until the Board decides on further action.
Additionally, Baylor College of Medicine placed Lin on administrative leave “while the investigation continues in Montgomery County,” according to a statement from the university.
