An alleged child predator from Medford is facing new charges, as he tried to pay a 15-year-old Foxborough girl for sex, according to authorities.

In April, Peter Campobasso, 30, of 21 Vista Ave., Medford, was charged with posing or exhibiting a child in a state of nudity or sexual conduct after he allegedly offered a 12-year-old Mansfield girl cash and gifts in exchange for nude photos of herself. He pleaded not guilty to that charge.

In late June, The Sun Chronicle reported Campobasso, a carnival worker, is facing new charges, as he also allegedly tried to set up a meeting with the 15-year-old girl at the Renaissance Hotel at Foxborough’s Patriot Place. The meeting never happened, authorities said.

Campobasso has pleaded to these new charges, enticing a child under 16, enticing a child for prostitution, attemptoing to engage in sexual conduct with a child under 18 for a feee and sending obscene matter to a minor, according to the report. The incident occurred prior to his initial arrest, as Campobasso has been in jail.
