SEATTLE (AP) - A 61-year-old Seattle psychologist has been charged in connection with seeking sex with a minor after posting an ad on Craigslist earlier this month.

Justice Department officials said in a news release Wednesday that Jonathan Brent Wulf started a conversation with a Homeland Security undercover agent after posting the ad. U.S. Attorney Annette L. Hayes says Wulf expressed a desire to have sex with the agent’s fictional 12-year-old stepdaughter.

Authorities arrested Wulf Tuesday after he arrived at a hotel chosen as the meeting place for the sexual encounter.

He has been charged with attempted enticement of a minor, which carries a prison sentence ranging from 10 years to life.

Wulf works as a psychologist with a Seattle medical group.
