An Alton man is being sentenced by a St. Louis County court for trying to entice a child into having sex in 2015.

Ryan Gosling, 37, was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors say he responded to a Craigslist ad that called for “family fun.” The ad was put up by an undercover detective who posed as mother named Melissa with two daughters under 15.

Gosling responded to the ad saying he wanted to have sex with “Melissa” and her daughters and also sent a photo of his penis to who he thought was one of Melissa’s daughter.

Prosecutors said Gosling said he wanted to meet her at a hotel so they could have sex.

He later showed up a hotel with condoms to meet “Melissa” and her daughters. He was then arrested.

Authorities said he admitted to the crime.
