MEDIA, Pa. (AP) - A Delaware man will spend three to six years in prison after pleading guilty to driving to Pennsylvania for a sexual tryst with what he believed was a 15-year-old boy he had met on Craigslist.

Instead, 57-year-old James Keith Smith, of New Castle, Delaware, was arrested by police in Aston after he drove to a fitness club where he thought he’d be meeting the boy on Aug. 18.

Smith pleaded guilty to attempted involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a minor in December and was sentenced Tuesday by a judge in Delaware County.

Smith’s attorney says he’s remorseful and takes his actions seriously, saying he’s also embarrassed for his family.
