ST. LOUIS (AP) -- A 39-year-old Illinois woman has been charged in federal court with enticing a 13-year-old Missouri boy for sexual activity through Facebook and text messaging.
A federal affidavit filed in St. Louis says Christie Bradley, of Waterloo, was arrested Wednesday after showing up at the boy's home in Arnold. Investigators say Bradley had brought lingerie and condoms.

The affidavit says authorities learned of the relationship Sept. 19. Federal agents and Arnold police then went undercover and began posing as the boy online, exchanging text messages and e-mails with Bradley.
Court documents say Bradley told the "boy" she loved him, wanted to marry him, and made sexually explicit comments.
Her attorney, Steven Kellogg, did not return an e-mail and call Thursday seeking comment.
