ANOTHER CLIFFVIEW PILOT SCOOP: A registered sex offender who once worked for the U.S. Defense Department was arrested last night after what Bergen County Prosecutor John L. Molinelli today said were arrangements he made to take nude photographs of a 6-year-old girl with a computer crimes detective he thought was the child’s mother.

Allan I. Davis, 58, is listed as a Megan’s Law offender in New York after he was convicted a dozen years ago of traveling from Marlyland to Tampa, Fla., for what he thought was a liasion with a 14-year-old girl. Authorities busted him for having child pornography.
This time, Molinelli said, Davis went online and connected with a detective from the prosecutor’s office who was trolling for predators.
Davis, an engineer who lives in Valley Stream and worked as a civilian employee for the government before his arrest, is charged with attempted child endangerment and attempted manufacture of child pornography.
He is being held on $250,000 pending a Tuesday arraignment in Superior Court in Hackensack.
Molinelli thanked Nassau County police, as well as the local departments who most recently rotated officers into his Computer Crimes Task Force — Fort Lee, Maywood, Upper Saddle and Waldwick.
