According to investigators, Figuerora had placed an ad in Craigslist looking for sex. He thought he had met a 16-year old boy….a teenager he planned to meet at the Stonebriar AMC Theater. It was a very-young-looking undercover officer who showed up.

When Figueroa went ahead with his scheme, he was busted.

Today, the Judge could sentence Figueroa anywhere from 10-years to life.
