EL RENO, Okla. – A Bethany man was arrested after allegedly trying to have sex with a 14-year-old girl.

On Wednesday, authorities arrested 20-year-old Keith Parks after he responded to an undercover social media post. An investigator with the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office was pretending to be a 14-year-old girl.

According to transcripts, Parks sent text messages to the under-aged decoy asking if she was into different types of sex.

Deputies say Parks made arrangements to meet with her at a Starbucks before they would go to his apartment.

“That sick puke worked himself into a sexual frenzy, and couldn’t wait to get his hands on this young girl so he could violate her little body, and ruin her life forever,” said Sheriff Randall Edwards.

Investigators arrested Parks, who provided a full confession to deputies.

He was arrested on charges of soliciting sex with a minor through use of technology.

“Unbelievably, there are people who oppose what we’re doing, and feel we’re entrapping innocent citizens exercising their constitutional rights, but me and my deputies have personally seen what happens to children this age when they meet up with an online sexual predator,” Edwards said.
