A Bryan man who thought he arranged to meet a 15-year-old girl for sex but instead encountered a Toledo police officer was convicted yesterday in Lucas County Common Pleas Court.
Brent D. Hurley, 24, pleaded no contest to disseminating material harmful to a juvenile and importuning. Judge Charles Wittenberg accepted the plea agreement and found Hurley guilty.
Hurley, who faces a one-year prison sentence, also was indicted on one count of attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, but prosecutors said the charge will be dismissed at sentencing April 28.
A Toledo police detective arrested Hurley Feb. 6 in his car in a parking lot at Westfield Shoppingtown Franklin Park.
The detective, posing as a teenage girl, contacted the defendant via an Internet chat room, and Hurley solicited sex from the detective and sent a photo of sexual content of himself.
