Long haul trucker arrested in Utah after trying to have sex with teen

A long haul truck driver from Tennessee has been charged with trying to have sex with a child in Utah.

Larry Todd Odham, 53, of Kingsfort, Tennessee, was charged Friday in 2nd District Court with attempted rape of a child, a first-degree felony.

On May 8, an undercover police officer placed an ad on an undisclosed “popular website” while posing as a father who was offering his 13-year-old daughter for sex, according to charging documents. Odham responded to the ad and from May 8 through May 11 “engaged in highly sexual conversation” with the undercover officer, a police affidavit states.

When Odham arrived at the designated meeting location, and told the “parent” to only have the child get into the cab of his truck, he was arrested, according to investigators.
