Richard Taylor, 36, was indicted on importuning, possession of criminal tools, and disseminating matter harmful to juveniles after attempting to engage in sex with a person he thought was a 15-year-old girl.

However, he was instead confronted by an undercover police officer posing as the 15-year-old girl to lure potential sex offenders.

“The defendant attempted to meet with an undercover officer who was posing as a 15-year-old female for sex,” a spokesperson for Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office said.

Taylor was arrested Tuesday, March 28 and booked into the Montgomery County Jail.

A warrant for his arrest was issued after his indictment.

He is scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday, June 15 in the Montgomery County Common Pleas Court.
