EX-CON OFFERED TO BECOME 15-YEAR-OLD GIRL’S “SUGAR DADDY”: COPS

A creepy ex-con tried to entice a 15-year-old Arizona girl into having sex and offered to become her “sugar daddy,” arrest records show.
Jonathan Wilson, 31, of Phoenix, was arrested Saturday after meeting the teen and her underage friend at their apartment complex parking lot a day earlier, the Arizona Republic reports, citing arrest records filed in Maricopa County Superior Court.
Wilson then sent several explicit messages to the teen on Facebook, but she didn’t respond to them.
“I know [you’re] sixteen, and I still want to come over so we can have 3-5 hours of wild, crazy sex,” Wilson wrote in one message obtained by KNXV.
In another, Wilson warned that the teen “should read this alone,” according to the station.
Wilson later admitted to police that he met the girl in the parking lot, but insisted she told him she was 16. He also initially denied sending the messages on Facebook, but later admitted that “it was not impossible, but not probable” that he sent the sick come-ons to the girl, the Arizona Republic reports.
One of the messages also included an offer to be the girl’s “sugar daddy,” with promised shopping trips and money in exchange for sex.
Wilson at first denied the allegations, saying he did not want to return to prison following a yearlong stint for criminal possession of a forgery device in 2007, the Republic reports.
Wilson is set to return to court on Aug. 5 on a charge of luring a minor for sexual exploitation.
