The chilling text messages that show Melbourne geneticist Michael Quinn was planning to molest children while on holiday in Los Angeles have been released.
Contained within a criminal complaint filed with the Central District Court of California earlier this week, the messages show Quinn eagerly sharing his interest in having sex with young boys with undercover special agentAaron McLellan, who was posing as a pimp.
When asked what he was interested in, Quinn replied, “I’d like to meet up with a dad who shares his young ones.”
Quinn also told McLellan, who used three fake pedophile personas to catch Quinn, “I’m awake and very keen for some hot action.”

Travelling from Melbourne to Los Angeles for a football tournament in May, 30-year-old Quinn spent weeks talking to McLellan before his eventual arrest and shared intimate details of his desires.
In their earliest exchange, McLellan began, "Hello young man. An Aussie aye? I have run across a couple of Aussie pervs on here recently," continuing, "I guess the Aussies are waking from the winter slumber and looking to play. Ha Ha Ha… I think I might be ready for another round of fun. If you understand what I’m saying."
