SHIP BOTTOM - A lifeguard who worked at the Jersey Shore is out on bail after being accused of arranging to have sex with a 6-year-old.

Walter Domanski, 51, is accused of making arrangements to pay a mother to have sex with her 6-year-old child. It was a sting and Domanski was arrested in Bergen County last December when he showed up at the location.

Domanski's attorney maintains his client was only going along with the plan, so he could meet the mother and convince her to reconsider selling her child for sex.

He is charged with attempted aggravated sexual assault and attempted endangering the welfare of a child. Seth Dixon, 28, of Brick is also being charged. He's accused of making the arrangements for Domanski online.

Domanski was released from the Bergen County Jail a week ago on $185,000 bond.
