Troy man sentenced to 12 years for trying to solicit 15-year-old online

TROY - A Troy man was sentenced to 12 years in prison Friday for online solicitation of a minor, a 2nd degree felony.

Investigators placed an ad on craigslist back in May of 2015 pretending to be a 15 year old girl.

35-year-old Jason Smith allegedly set up a meeting with the girl in Copperas Cove where police arrested him.

He admitted to trying to meet the girl for sex, and to having meth.
