Convicted Felon Meeting to Have Sex with "14-year-old" Instead Lands in Jail
Arthur Been, Jr. was arrested when he went to meet up with the girl for sex. Instead, he met with undercover deputies who cuffed him instead.
The Canadian County Sheriff's Office arrested the 38-year-old Monday after he responded to an online advertisement from an undercover deputy posing as a 14-year-old girl.
Been admitted to investigators and the girl that he knew what he was doing was wrong. Despite that, he set up a time and location to meet the girl and even provided a photograph of himself and a description of his car.
When he arrived, deputies had already set up shop at the location and put him in custody.
Been is a convicted felon. He was booked into the Canadian County Jail on charges of Facilitating, encouraging, offering or soliciting sexual conduct with a minor and Possession of Marijuana. Bond has been set at $101,000.
