VERNON - A Vernon man who attempted to lure a child online has been sentenced to nine months in jail.
Stewart Kerr was arrested in a restaurant in August 2013, when he thought he was meeting a young boy.
Kerr, who is in his 50s, had been communicating online with someone who he believed was a child.
He was actually in contact with an RCMP officer.
Kerr's sentence includes three years' probation, and he must provide a DNA sample.
