Alexander, 27, also advertised himself on websites as a babysitter, investigators said.
According to the report, a year-old father posted a Craigslist ad on March 26 saying he was looking for someone to split a motel room for a few days as he waited to move into his new home. He noted in the ad that he has a 2-year-old daughter. Deputies, after reading the texts, impersonated the father and texted back that the messenger could be alone with the girl if he paid for two nights of the motel room.
Detectives said they arrested Alexander when he arrived at the door with a condom stashed in his shoe. They say Alexander admitted sending the texts, saying he had a sexual addiction.
