Police say Ohio man used Net to solicit sex with girl

The Associated Press

        ALLIANCE, Ohio — A 37-year-old man was arrested Wednesday for allegedly soliciting sex on the Internet from someone he thought was a 12-year-old girl — but turned out to be an undercover officer in Arizona.

        David Rosier of Alliance was arrested at Kent State University, where he is a student, and was being held in Stark County Jail to await extradition to Arizona, said Detective Gregory Anderson of the Alliance Police Department.

        A warrant has been issued against Mr. Rosier in Pima County Superior Court in Arizona, charging him with conspiracy to commit sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of a minor under 15, the FBI said in a news release.

        The FBI said that from April 12 to June 10, Mr. Rosier allegedly sent child pornography over the Internet and made arrangements to travel to Arizona to have sex with the “youth.”

        But the youth was really a police officer from Tuscon, Ariz., who was taking part in a sting operation, Detective Anderson said.
