Gregory Joseph Cortez II, 33 of Calcasieu Parish, was arrested in Metarie last week following an investigation by agents with Homeland Security Investigations, Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office and the Louisiana Attorney General's Cyber Crime Unit.

Cortez thought he was either talking to an 11-year old girl or her guardian – it's unclear which one, but discovered that, instead, he had been setting up a meeting for Thursday with a law enforcement officer.

Cortez admitted that he intended to have sex with the 11-year old girl. He was booked on Friday and charged with attempted first degree rape.
