SPOKANE, Wash. — A resident physician in Spokane, Washington, has been found guilty of sexually enticing a child over the internet.

The Spokesman-Review reports a jury found 30-year-old Chavis Jackson guilty Thursday.

Police say Jackson responded to a casual encounters Craigslist ad posted by Coeur d’Alene Police. In an ensuing email exchange, police say an officer, who posed as a 14-year-old girl, told Jackson multiple times she was 14.

Jackson, who spoke of sex acts in the online conversation, agreed to meet the underage girl at a Coeur d’Alene hotel, where he was met by police.

Jackson told a jury that the online chat was part of a game he was playing and that he had no intention of having sex.

Providence Sacred Heart chief medical executive Jeff Collins said Jackson was fired Friday.
