CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- Police have arrested a man they say was trying to solicit sex from a 14-year-old girl on Craigslist. What he didn't know was the "girl" he was contacting was really an undercover cop.

After Stephenson was arrested, the affidavit says he admitted that his intention was to have sex with a 14-year-old girl.
