A Jefferson City man has been arrested for having graphic sexual text and e-mail conversations with what he thought was a 14-year-old Boone County boy. 34-year-old Nicholas Adam Bax learned he was actually talking to an undercover detective with the Boone County Cyber Crimes Task Force.

At one point Bax was led to believe the boy had snuck out of his home late at night to meet Bax, but Bax could not find him. Bax also sent graphic photos to the boy and asked the boy to send some to him.

He is charged with attempted enticement of a child, attempted sexual exploitation of a minor and attempted sexual misconduct of a child.
