Police: Antioch man arrested after trying to meet 14-year-old for sex


ANTIOCH, Ill. — A 43-year-old Antioch man was arrested last week amid an undercover child predator sting operation.

Police said he engaged in a sexually explicit conversation with who he thought was the boy, but was actually a detective with Antioch police.

Bedini was charged with indecent solicitation of a child and sexual exploitation of a child. His next court date is scheduled for Nov. 17.
