Utah Man Charged with Child Enticement in Idaho
CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) — Idaho prosecutors have charged a Utah man with felony child enticement after he allegedly arranged to meet an undercover officer representing himself online as a 15-year-old girl.
Allen Johnson was arrested Friday afternoon at the Caldwell restaurant where authorities say the 48-year-old Provo man was to meet who he thought was the teenager. The Canyon County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office says Johnson had been communicating with the undercover officer in online conversations that were sexual in nature.
Authorities say Johnson gave the officer access to his online profile with pornographic images and agreed to meet the girl to engage in sexual relations.
