October 23, 2007

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky Attorney General Greg Stumbo said seven men, including five from Tennessee, were arrested during a weekend Internet sex sting.

The attorney general's office worked with local authorities in Warren County and an Internet watchdog group to conduct the operation.

The men were lured to a home in Bowling Green, a town about 115 miles southwest of Louisville.

Law enforcement officials in Kentucky also worked with "Dateline NBC: To Catch a Predator."

Each suspect was charged with attempted unlawful transaction with a minor, a felony, and faces up to 10 years in prison.

They were all being held on $50,000 cash bonds. Stumbo said their ages range from 24 to 41.
