A man has been arrested for arranging a meeting to have sex with a 12-year-old girl.

It all started on Thursday when 22-year-old Andrew Kimsey sent text messages to a 17-year-old female friend, telling him that he was interested in having sex with a 12-year-old girl and asking if she knew one.

The friend, thinking it was an April Fools' Day joke, gave the suspect a phone number to call. When Kimsey began calling the number and negotiating a price for sex, the friend called police.
Rancho Cordova detectives arranged a meeting for a young girl to meet with the suspect late Thursday night at a McDonald's in Del Paso Heights. Kimsey was arrested when he arrived.

He is facing charges of communicating with a minor with the intent to commit sexual offenses, arranging to meet with a minor for the purpose of engaging in lewd and lascivious behavior, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, felony possession of marijuana and soliciting for prostitution. He is being held on $100,000 bail.
