    A 34-year-old child psychologist at the Yeshiva University's Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx has been arrested for allegedly engaging in sexually explicit online conversations with an undercover detective he thought was a 14-year-old girl, authorities said Wednesday.

    The psychologist, Justin Miller, was arrested Tuesday in the Bronx as a result of the three-month investigation. An online profile says he has eight years of experience. 

    Since January, authorities allege Miller engaged in the explicit sexual conversations with the undercover detective and at what point said he wanted to meet the 14-year-old girl he thought he was chatting with for sex. Police say he admitted to engaging in the sex chats with someone he believed to be a teenager.

    Miller was charged with disseminating indecent material to a minor and acting in a manner injurious to a child younger than 17, which is a felony.  

    An email request to Miller seeking comment bounced back, and information on an attorney for him wasn't immediately available. 

    Albert Einstein College of Medicine referred questions about the case to police. Miller was not listed on the college's website Wednesday.
