NEW HAVEN, MO (KTVI) – A 26-year-old man is under arrest for attempting to have sex with a 14-year-old girl. The Boone County Sheriff’s department arrested Jason Strubberg on January 8th. The Franklin County man is being charged with attempting to entice a child and attempted sodomy.

Police say Strubberg started e-mailing a woman in January that he believed had a 14-year-old daughter. The woman was actually an undercover detective with the Cyber Crimes Task Force. After several e-mails he told the adult decoy that he wanted to meet the teen for sex.

Investigators say Strubberg traveled to a location in Boone County to have sex with the 14-year-old. He was placed under arrest.

The bond is yet to be set in this case.
