CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Federal court documents unsealed Friday say that a 13 year-old Laramie County girl turned to her parents for help after a stranger she encountered on the Internet in recent weeks demanded she produce sexually explicit videos.

The subsequent investigation by Wyoming's Internet Crimes against Children Task Force led to federal charges against 23-year-old Christopher J. Beets of Santa Rosa, California.

Federal prosecutor Jim Anderson in Cheyenne says Beets faces charges of attempted production of child pornography and attempted online enticement of a child.

Anderson says Beets has been arrested in California and says authorities plan to bring Beets to Wyoming for prosecution.

Court records don't reflect that Beets has an attorney yet and don't show that he's filed any response to the charges.
