PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) - A Florida man has been charged in Alabama with traveling to meet a child for an unlawful sex act.

The Montgomery Advertiser reports that 31-year-old Robert Henry Ruffner of Orlando was also charged with electronic solicitation of a child for an unlawful sex act. He appeared Monday for a preliminary hearing before a judge.

Ruffner was arrested Nov. 8 in Autauga County. He’s accused of making contact with an investigator who testified that he had been posing as a 13-year-old on a social media chat app.

The investigator says Ruffner made a statement saying he made a trip to have sex with what he thought was a 13-year-old girl.

Ruffner’s attorney says his client has never been in trouble before.
