BENTON - A Williamson County man was convicted yesterday on charges of traveling for attempted enticement of a minor into sexual activity.
Aimen Garro, 38, was convicted after attempting to meet with an alleged 15-year-old girl, during an operation conducted by agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation in August 2020.
According to court documents and evidence presented during the trial, Garro responded to an online dating application and began sending messages to an undercover FBI agent in July 2020.
Garro believed he was speaking with a 15-year-old girl, asked for nude photographs and used sexually-explicit language to plan meeting arrangements for the purpose of engaging in illegal sexual activity.
He later traveled to the girl's location but was taken into custody upon arrival. Sentencing is scheduled for May 3, 2023.
