Tyndall Colonel Found Guilty For Soliciting 14-Year-Old Boy Online

BAY COUNTY, Fla. -     An Air Force officer accused of traveling to meet a minor for sex in Bay County is found guilty.

    Police say Michael Garrett wrote sexually explicit messages to a person he thought to be a 14-year-old boy.

    The boy was actually an undercover Panama City Beach police officer. Garrett even went so far as to try and meet the child. 

    During his trial Garrett claimed he never believed the person he was talking to was a minor, because Craigslist only allows adults to post.

    However, jurors found him guilty Tuesday. He is scheduled to be sentenced on January 11th.
