February 12, 2009 (CRETE, Ill.) --
A Minnesota man is charged with trying to solicit sex from someone he allegedly thought was an underage girl from the south suburbs. Mark Garso, 36, of Lakeville Minnesota, is charged with indecent solicitation of a child via the internet.
Investigators say Garso thought he was engaging in sexually-explicit conversations with a 13-year old girl from Crete. His conversations were really with a Crete police officer.
Garso is also accused of going to an address where he thought he would find the girl.
