CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Police have arrested a man they say was trying to solicit sex from a 14-year-old girl on Craigslist. What he didn't know was the "girl" he was contacting was really an undercover cop.

According to an affidavit, 32-year-old Brian Scott Stephenson was charged with attempted criminal sexual conduct with a minor after he tried to meet up with who he thought was an underaged girl he met on Craigslist.

The undercover cop placed an ad in the Casual Encounters section of the site, posed as a minor and arranged a meeting with Stephenson at the Marcos Pizza place on Mary Adder Ave.

After Stephenson was arrested, the affidavit says he admitted that his intention was to have sex with a 14-year-old girl.
