“On October 26, 2023 in Utah County, the defendant made contact on Chatib with an officer posing as a 13 year old girl (hereinafter “UC”). After initial greetings, the UC told the defendant she was 13 years old. The defendant said that didn’t bother him and further demonstrated he knew her age by asking her how school was. The defendant turned the conversation sexual and asked the UC if she wanted to [redacted by FLOODLIT]. When the UC agreed, the defendant questioned her about her sexual history and asked when they could meet up to have sex. The defendant asked the UC if she could skip school the following day to meet him, and when the UC said the school calls home if she misses, he arranged to meet her that night. The defendant asked the UC how long she could be gone and when she said 30-45 minutes he said they could have sex in the backseat of his car. The defendant asked for the UC’s phone number and moved the conversation to texting. The defendant asked the UC for a photo and the UC sent two photos that had been age regressed.
