A man accused of attempting to lure a teenage girl for sex has been sentenced to 10 years probation.

Michael Scott Sanders, 34, pleaded guilty to one count of solicitation to lure a minor for sexual exploitation in March.

Sanders was arrested in December when Tucson Police officers tracked him to a meeting point where he planned to meet an underage girl for sex.

He had been communicating with what he thought was a 16-year old girl, but actually was Tucson Police.

He originally was charged with luring of a minor for sexual exploitation and sexual conduct with a minor.
