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.

Pima County Superior Court Judge Howard Fell sentenced Sanders Monday. In addition to probation, Sanders must complete 200 hours of community service, have no contact with minors unless approved by his probation officer, submit to counseling recommended by probation and register as a sex offender.

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.

Acting as a teen girl online, police later told Sanders the girl was actually 14 years old. He still sought to meet the supposed teenager for sex.
