Man Sentenced for Traveling to Have Sex with Teenage Girl

DEFUNIAK SPRINGS - An Okaloosa County man will spend the next 21 months in prison after getting caught in the kind of undercover sting you used to see on Dateline’s “How to Catch a Predator.”

In January, 31-year-old Shawn Brock drove to DeFuniak Springs to have sex with a 14-year-old girl he met on-line, named “Katie.” He was arrested when he arrived at the convenience store because “Katie” was actually an investigator with the Walton County Sheriff’s Office’s cyber-crime unit.

Brock was charged with Obscene Communications-Traveling to Meet after Using Computer to Lure Child and later convicted. On Thursday, a judge sentenced Brock to 21 months in state prison.

Brock will have to register as a sex offender upon his release.
