A man from Tulsa has been sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for attempted enticement of a minor.

On Oct. 21, 2009, Robert Dean Graef pleaded guilty to engaging in online chats with a person he believed was a 13-year-old girl, but who in fact was an undercover officer with the Jasper County Sheriff’s Department.

On April 17, 2009, Graef made arrangements to meet the girl at a cemetery in Carthage. When Graef entered the cemetery and drove to the crypt where the meeting was to take place, he was taken into custody.

At the time of his arrest, Graef had a pistol holder and .40-caliber magazine in his pocket. A loaded .40-caliber Glock pistol with a laser sight and a magazine was located in the center console of the mans vehicle. Officers also found duct tape, black plastic zip ties fashioned into handcuffs, a pair of handcuffs, two Glock magazines with 13 rounds of .40-caliber ammunition, and 50 rounds of .45-caliber ammunition in Graef’s vehicle. Cops also found a pistol holder and .40-caliber magazine in his pocket.

Graef also admitted that he traveled across state lines to Jasper County, Mo., on April 17, 2009, for the purpose of attempting to engage in illicit sexual conduct.

In addition to the 10 year sentence, Graef must forfeit a Glock .40-caliber handgun, magazines and .40-caliber ammunition, and a 2000 Chrysler Sebring convertible, all of which were used to commit the offenses.
