Frederick County Maryland Sheriff’s Office (FCMSO) report the arrest of a Stephens City man.

On November 11  FCMSO arrested Stephens City resident Brian Brooks on eight separate counts of sexual solicitation of a minor.

The 43-year-old Brooks was targeted by the Internet Crimes Against Children Frederick County Maryland Division on October 11.

At that time Brooks made unsolicited contact with a person he believed to be a 14-year-old through a cellular device.

The 14-year-old was in reality a detective working undercover who warned Brooks several times that he was speaking to someone underage.

Despite the warning Brooks continued to engage in a conversation soliciting numerous sex acts.

Brooks stated that he would travel from Virginia to Frederick County Maryland to engage with the minor.

After making the trip and meeting at an arranged location Brooks was arrested upon arrival without incident.

FCMSO Lieutenant Andrew Crone stated that Brooks knew without a doubt that he was talking to a minor.

Brooks was taken to the Frederick County Maryland Adult Detention Center for booking.

His charges include crossing state lines for intent of sexual acts with a minor.
