Metro man accused of soliciting sex from underage girl, wanted to runaway to Colorado
OKLAHOMA CITY (KOKH) —
An Oklahoma City man has been arrested after allegedly soliciting sex from a girl that he believed to be underage.
Buddy Kegin, 58, was arrested August 10 by the Canadian County Sheriff's Office on a complaint of soliciting sex with a minor by use of technology. Canadian County Sheriff Chris West says that an investigation into Kegin began after he posted an online advertisement titled "Older experienced man looking to teach young virgin".
An undercover deputy, posing as a 14-year-old girl, responded to the ad and a conversation between Kegin began. Kegin allegedly told the girl they could "runaway to Colorado" and discussed the girl losing her virginity. He also reportedly asked for nude photographs.
West says that Kegin told the girl he couldn't wait to "see her naked" and that he "loved her". Authorities then contacted Kegin at his residence on Oakcliff Drive in Oklahoma City.
Kegin was then arrested and booked into the Canadian County Jail.
