Longview, TX — A Gregg County man who thought he was meeting a 14-year-old boy for sex when he was arrested last year pleaded guilty Monday to online solicitation of a minor for sexual contact.
Christopher Scott Church, 35, was handed a 12-year sentence by 124th District Judge Alfonso Charles. He had faced up to 20 years for the second-degree felony.
Church was given credit for the 329 days he has spent in the Gregg County Jail since his March 13, 2012, arrest in a Longview Police Department sting in cooperation with the Dallas Police Department’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
