    A Texas man faces federal charges of traveling to Missouri to have sex with two underage girls after agreeing to pay $400 to a police officer who posed as their father.

    The U.S. attorney's office says 40-year-old John Paul Christian was unwittingly communicating with a Kansas City officer on a social media site when he made plans to meet the girls, 11 and 15.

    Christian was arrested after flying to Kansas City on Saturday and was charged Wednesday. Investigators said a search of his motel room yielded a notebook containing a letter telling the 15-year-old he wanted to get her pregnant with a baby girl so they could both sexually molest her.

    Christian's hometown in Texas was not listed. It wasn't immediately clear Thursday whether he had obtained an attorney.
