A Texas man faces federal charges of traveling to Kansas City to have sex with two underage girls after agreeing to pay $400 to a police officer who posed as their father.

The U.S. attorney’s office says John Paul Christian, 40, was unwittingly communicating with a Kansas City officer on a social media site when he made plans to meet the girls, 11 and 15.

Christian was arrested after flying to Kansas City Saturday and was charged Wednesday. Investigators said a search of his motel room yielded a notebook containing a letter telling the 15-year-old he wanted to get her pregnant with a baby girl so they could both sexually molest her.

Christian’s hometown in Texas was not listed.
