JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Jonesboro Police arrest a man after they say he crossed state lines to have sex with a 14-year-old boy.

Police say he had been communicating with that teen through e-mail for two days. Turns out, the person on the other side of that conversation was a cop.

Wolverton, an emergency room R. N. in a Memphis Hospital, is being held without bond.

He'll be in the Craighead County Jail until Secret Service officers take him to face federal charges.
