FAIRFIELD (CBS13) – A Fairfield man pleaded guilty on Wednesday to using a social media app to set up meetings with young girls with the intention of sexually assaulting them, the US Department of Justice said.
Kevin Blaine Cline, 47, posted on social media that he was “looking for fathers who love their daughters near me, I have a question,” the Department of Justice said. A note at the bottom of the online post read “Freak Sexual Desires”.

An undercover agent saw the message and while posing as a father, exchanged messages with Cline for two days on Whisper, a social media app where users can remain anonymous. The Justice Department said Cline sent two images of child pornography and arranged to meet the undercover agent and her “daughter” with the intention of sexually molesting her.

Cline traveled from Fairfield to Pleasant Hill thinking he would meet a 7 year old girl. Cline was immediately placed under arrest upon arrival.
Prosecutors said the plea deal included a description of the sexual activity Cline intended to engage in with the young girl, in addition to the sexual activity he wished to have with a 10-year-old girl from the Washington State.
