LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Lexington man who thought he was arranging to meet an 11-year-old girl for sex was actually interacting with an undercover officer, according to an arrest citation.

According to that citation, which was made out by the Kentucky Attorney General's Office, it happened on Wednesday afternoon.

Police say 48-year-old Sherwin D. Collins had been exchanging e-mails and text messages with an undercover officer who was posing as the parent of an 11-year-old girl. During these exchanges, Collins allegedly discussed a sexual fantasy he had involving a mother and a daughter, and expressed an interest in coming to Frankfort in order to engage in sex acts with the 11-year-old.

According to the arrest citation, Collins made arrangements with the undercover officer to meet in Frankfort. When he arrived at the meeting location, he was taken into custody.

He is charged with the Prohibited Use of an Electronic Communications System to Procure a Minor to Engage in Sexual Activities. He is currently being held in the Franklin County Regional Jail.
