A man has been sentenced to lifetime supervised probation after he was caught in a child sex sting set up by undercover officers.
Phoenix police report that in June 2017, David Hogan, 57, made contact with undercover officers posing as the parents of a pre-teen girl.
Hogan answered an online advertisement and had email conversations with the detectives, asking them, "So, what kind of money are we talking?" They agreed upon a price of $60 for him to have sex with the girl, documents showed.
Hogan also reportedly admitted to the undercover detectives that he had been considering doing this for many years and even met with other parents to set up opportunities to have sex with their children. He also told them that he had a vasectomy in case he was able to have unprotected sex with the girl.
Hogan agreed to meet the "parents" and the girl at a public, shaded parking lot in north Phoenix.
He was arrested and charged with attempted sexual conduct with a minor and child prostitution.
He pleaded guilty to attempted sexual conduct with a minor and agreed to lifetime supervised probation. He must also register as a sex offender.
