Prosecutors said Baker didn’t initially ask for sex, but slowly “groomed” the teen by building a relationship with him.
At one point, Baker asked “Aidan” if his mom could bring him by the yogurt shop so they could see each other and Baker could make sure the teen wasn’t a law enforcement officer, according to the news report.
Baker's attorney sought a reduced sentence since his client didn't have previous arrests and there wasn't actually a minor involved, the paper reported. He argued that Baker works two jobs, attended 16 weeks of group therapy and is a part of a men's support group.
The 29-year-old was sentenced to eight years in prison followed by 17 years on probation. Once he's released, Baker must register as a sex offender.
