A high school teacher was arrested Friday amid charges that he solicited sex from an undercover police officer posing as a 15-year-old cheerleader.
Brett Conley, 27, a teacher at Kentridge High School in Kent, Wa., reportedly answered an online personal ad in the "Casual Encounters" section of an online site, according to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer
. But it was posted by a Seattle Police Department detective posing as a cheerleader with the title, "Student looking for older men."

Messages allegedly detailed the specific sexual acts desired, and he reportedly agreed to a $100 price.
According to the arrest record, Conley arranged a meeting last week at a McDonald's, but was arrested by the detective.
Conley has been charged with "attempted commercial sexual abuse of a minor."
"He tried to meet with a 15-year-old girl in order to have sex with her in exchange for money," Senior Deputy Prosecutor Carol Spoor said in court papers, according to the Post-Intelligencer. "The defendant's intentions were clear from his e-mail correspondence and he admitted to the detective that he intended to have sex with the girl."
Conley taught freshman and sophomore English and social studies at Kentridge High.
"He wasn't, like, creepy or anything," student Elysia Krupp told TV-station KIRO
. "He was, like, a pretty good teacher. He was one of my favorites. It was actually kind of weird to hear that that happened."
Chris Loftis, executive director of communications for Kent School District, told the Post-Intelligencer that Conley joined the district in August. He has been placed on paid administrative leave.
"To work in a school district is a public trust," Loftis told the paper. "If what is alleged to have occurred did occur, then obviously that's a breach of that trust."
