A Texas Tech student suspected of trying to lure an 11-year-old he met online is out of jail.
Isaac James Scott, 21, bailed out of the Lubbock County Jail on a $75,000 bond. He's charged with online solicitation of a minor. Fortunately the meeting between the 21-year-old and 11-year-old never happened, thanks to the child's father.
Police say Scott allegedly engaged in a sexually explicit chat with the 11-year-old after they met on a popular social web site. Scott also allegedly sent nude pictures of himself to the juvenile.
Police say the two reportedly planned to meet in the McDonald's parking lot at 112 N. University on Tuesday night. The child's father found out about the plan to meet and called police. Officers spotted Scott parked in a gray Ford pickup truck and arrested him at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Currently police are not saying whether the 11-year-old was a boy or girl and they are still questioning all parties involved. Police also confiscated Scott's computer.
Thursday afternoon NewsChannel 11 went to Scott's home in the 1600 block of Avenue R for some answers, but were unable to contact him.
Police say this should be an important reminder to parents to track their children's online activity. They say it most likely prevented what could have been a terrible crime.
This case is still under investigation and NewsChannel 11 will of course bring you more information as it becomes available.
