WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A West Sacramento man is facing charges that he solicited an undercover police officer to perform a sex act on his teenage foster son.
The man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of soliciting a prostitute and contributing to the delinquency of a minor, West Sacramento police Lt. Dave Farmer said.
The 16-year-old boy and five other foster children were immediately removed from the man’s house, Farmer said. The man’s name was not released to protect the identity of the foster children, who range in age from 4 to 16.
Police said the man, with the boy in the car, approached a female undercover officer and request a sex act for the 16-year-old.
The man was one of 10 men arrested during an eight-hour prostitution sting. He was booked into Yolo County jail but has since been released.
