A Carbondale-area man is facing a maximum of life in prison after FBI special agents in Kansas City believe he attempted to solicit sex with a purported 7-year-old girl.

Posing as a single mother of two, an FBI online covert employee engaged in months of online chats and then text messages with Ryan Edward Mausner, 42, who lists a Missouri Heights address in Eagle County, including “numerous sexually suggestive or overtly sexually explicit comments,” according to an affidavit filed in U.S. District Court in western Missouri.

The affidavit, filed May 25 on the day he allegedly flew to Kansas City to meet the family, states that Mausner engaged in the “attempted online enticement of a minor,” going so far as to travel to Missouri for Memorial Day Weekend with the intent of engaging in illegal sexual activity.

He he was arrested by U.S. Marshals after he arrived in Kansas City and faces one count in U.S. District Court. Penalty for the Class A felony ranges from a minimum of 10 years to no more than life.
