Police officer charged with arranging to have sex with teen

A sting involved an undercover FBI employee

WENTZVILLE, Mo. - A central Missouri police officer has been charged with arranging to meet a woman and have sex with her 14-year-old daughter after it turned out that the woman was actually an undercover FBI employee.
  
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the sex charge was filed Tuesday in federal court against 41-year-old Clint Baer, one day after an FBI sting in Wentzville.
  
An affidavit says he was arrested while walking to a hotel, where the teen was supposed to be waiting, with a woman whom he believed was her mother. An FBI agent say Baer admitted giving the woman money for the hotel room, but said he wasn't sure that he was going to go through with having sex with the teen.
  
The Centralia police department says Baer is no longer an employee.
