Texas A&M Student Arrested for Online Solicitation of a Minor

By  | 

A Texas A&M student who was indicted last year on 17 counts of child pornography has found himself on the wrong side of the law again.

Corey Armstrong was arrested Thursday and charged with two counts of online solicitation of a minor and one count of unlawfully carrying a weapon.

According to court documents Armstrong, 22, had a sexually explicit online conversation with a Bryan police officer who was posing as a 13-year-old girl.

Police say Armstrong was arrested when he showed up at a local gas station to meet the girl for sex.

Earlier this month 361st District Court Judge Steve Smith threw out Armstrong's plea agreement for his previous indictment. The agreement would have sentenced Armstrong to 10 days in jail.

Smith did not accept the agreement, saying the jail sentence was too short. Armstrong is still listed as a student at A&M, but is no longer a member of the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets.
