Turlock man arrested after minor solicited for sex

May 16, 2013 

— A 48-year-old Turlock man was arrested Thursday on charges of soliciting a 15-year-old girl for sex, police reported.

Police say Jose Hinojosa met the alleged victim in a store in Turlock. He asked her for her phone number and their conversations became sexual in nature, said Sgt. Stephen Webb.

After police were notified, a female detective used the teen's cell phone to call Hinojosa.

Webb said Hinojosa offered money in exchange for sex and set up a meeting in a local Turlock park, where police took him into custody.

Hinojosa was booked at the Stanislaus County Jail on charges of illegal contact with a minor and arranging a meeting with a minor for purposes of engaging in sexual acts.
