GOSHEN — A Topeka man who was arrested in a Goshen park for child solicitation allegedly told police he was going to meet an underage girl to teach her not to meet older men.

James York, 51, is charged with two counts of child solicitation after his arrest on Sept. 5. He was arrested after allegedly making plans to meet a 14-year-old girl he had chatted with online for a week, not knowing it was actually a Goshen Police officer trained in combatting human trafficking.
