A 20-year-old Juneau man was arrested Friday for attempted sexual abuse of a minor, after a months-long investigation by the Juneau and Sitka police departments.
Regal Robert Hudson faces a total of nine charges, including sexual abuse of a minor, attempted sexual abuse of a minor, online enticement and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
According to a Juneau Police Department release, the initial charge came after Hudson allegedly set up a sex date with an undercover JPD detective posing as a 13-year-old girl. When Hudson arrived at the location where the sex was to take place he was greeted by several JPD officers.
Juneau police say their investigation into Hudson started in March. Sitka police began investigating Hudson in January 2013.
Hudson’s first court appearance was on Saturday. Additional proceedings are scheduled for Tuesday. He has not entered a plea.
He’s being held at Lemon Creek Correctional Center on $75,000 cash bond.
