A man was arrested after admitting to police that he was trying to have sex with a teen.

The man, who is a state worker, called the FBI after believing that he was being scammed, but he ended up in jail for soliciting sex from a teenager.

54-year-old Nicholas Deelstra of Utah, told the FBI that he responded to an ad on Craigslist that offered sex with a 16-year-old boy.

He communicated with the teen, who agreed to come to his home in North Logan, but the child never showed up, according to court documents.

Deelstra told the FBI that the next day, a person claiming to be the teen’s father began sending him messages, demanding money.

The man asked Deelstra to pay for repairs on the car that was damaged while the teenager was driving to meet him for sex.

Deelstra apparently believed that the ad on Craigslist was set up for the sole purpose of blackmailing him into paying for their damaged car.

The FBI referred the case to Logan City Police, who interviewed Deelstra and arrested him for soliciting sexual activity with a 16-year-old boy.

Deelstra told an officer that he agreed to meet the teen for sex despite knowing that he was a minor, according to court records.

Police reviewed Deelstra’s phone and found sexually explicit messages between him and the alleged teenager.

He was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, dealing in materials harmful to a minor and soliciting a minor by Internet or text.

Deelstra was booked into the Cache County jail, in lieu of $10,000 bail.

Deelstra is employed at the Rehabilitation Office of the State Department of Labor Services, where he helps teenagers and disabled people find work.

The Department of Workforce Services spokesman Nate McDonald said that they are also investigating the matter.
