A man arrested in a sex-crimes sting two months ago pleaded guilty Monday felony solicitation by a computer for sex.

Ronnie Logan Fisher, 40, of North Mulberry Street in Statesville was sentenced in Caldwell Superior Court to 10-21 months in prison.

Fisher was one of three men arrested in a sting operation by the Caldwell County Sheriff's Office, which had set up fake online profiles to try to lure pedophiles. After exchanging messages online with a detective posing as a child, Fisher agreed on Feb. 7 to meet at Gamewell Park, where he was arrested, investigators said.
