Bismarck police have arrested a 39-year-old man for luring a minor by computer.

Brett Lee Evans, of Bismarck, has been charged with one felony count of luring minors by computer.

According to an affidavit, Evans believed he was communicating with a 15-year-old girl on Facebook, and attempted to meet the girl and asked her for lewd pictures and a video of her showering.

Police arrested Evans at his apartment. In an interview, he allegedly told officers he had a "previous problem with child pornography" and pleaded guilty to certain material prohibited in 2013."

He had an initial appearance in court on Monday, when South Central District Judge Cynthia Feland set his bond at $100,000.
