Man arrested on Web sex charges

        A New Philadelphia, Ohio, man accused of soliciting sex with what he thought was a 15-year-old boy in an Internet chat room was arrested Monday after he allegedly arranged a rendezvous in the parking lot of a Camp Washington restaurant.

        Members of the Regional Computer Crimes Task Force arrested Griffen B. Wallick, 48, and charged him with attempted corruption of a minor after he arrived at the parking lot at Central Parkway and Bates Avenue about 11:40 a.m.

        Mr. Wallick thought he was messaging the teen in a chat room when he actually was com municating with an undercover officer, said Steve Barnett, spokesman for the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

        Mr. Wallick is jailed at the Hamilton County Justice Center pending arraignment today in municipal court.
