Shawn Lee Radford, 53, pleaded guilty to one count each of enticing a minor over internet or text, a second-degree felony, and dealing in materials harmful to a minor, a third-degree felony. He also pleaded guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia, a class B misdemeanor.

Radford has been held at the Cache County Jail on $200,000 bail since his arrest in early January.

Logan police say they had been investigating the man for nearly six months after receiving a report that a man had been watching the girl through the window of her home and leaving a note on her front door with his phone number so she could contact him.

The note was turned over to a detective who initiated a monthslong period of communication via text message that prosecutor Spencer Walsh described as “sexually charged.”

Radford sent a text and made arrangements to meet the girl for sex. Instead, he met the detective and was taken into custody.

At the time of his arrest, Radford was in possession of condoms, alcohol, meth and drug paraphernalia.

Radford is to undergo a pyschosexual evaluation and the standard presentence investigation before his sentencing date in April.
