PROVO, Utah (AP) — A 25-year-old BYU student has been arrested in an undercover sex sting after allegedly chatting online with an officer posing as a 13-year-old girl.

Nicholas Lewis of Provo is scheduled to appear Tuesday in 4th District Court on seven felony charges, including enticing a minor.

The Deseret News reports ( that Lewis allegedly sent 10 nude images of himself to the officer's disguised profile over a six-month period.

The charging documents say he asked the officer he thought was a teenage girl to have video sex chats with him. They say he also wanted to bring her to his home when his wife wasn't there.

Lewis bailed out of the Utah County Jail on Friday. It's not clear if he has hired a lawyer or will be appointed one at Tuesday's initial court appearance.
