Louisville man arrested for trying to meet person he thought was underage for sex

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Officials have arrested a Louisville man authorities say tried to meet up for sex with a person he thought was a juvenile.

Shawn Greschel, 30, was arrested Monday at his home in the 1900 block of Richmond Drive, near Bardstown Road.

According to the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General, Greschel met an undercover officer online. Officials say Greschel was told the investigator was a "minor persona."

Investigators say Greschel then asked to meet the person he believed was a minor for sex.

Greschel is charged with prohibited use of an electronic communication system to procure a minor or peace officer for sex.

He was placed on home incarceration after appearing in court Tuesday morning.

He has been ordered to have no contact with children other than his own. He's also been ordered to not access the internet.
