LEBANON — A 29-year-old Rutland man has been charged with trying to meet a juvenile for sex in a Lebanon parking lot, according to a news release from Lebanon police.

Joey Sherwood faces charges including certain uses of computer services prohibited, attempted felonious sexual assault and attempted endangering the welfare of a child.

The arrest was part of an undercover operation by Lebanon police, who struck up a conversation with Sherwood over social media. The conversation led to Sherwood arranging to meet a person he thought was a child at a parking lot off Market Street in West Lebanon, according to police.

But police were waiting when he arrived and took him into custody. He is being held at the Grafton County House of Corrections ahead of his arraignment.
