Dylan R. Allred, 31, is free on $10,000 bond. He has not yet entered a plea to the charges.
Allred was a video producer for Radio From Hell, the radio show starring his father, Bill Allred, on Alternative KXRK 96.3 FM, as well as a podcast and often appears on air. Bill Allred on Friday read a brief statement on his show saying his son was charged with a crime and described the situation as a private matter.
Court documents say the younger Allred was arrested by an FBI child exploitation task force on Feb. 21. A detective from the Lehi Police Department, working undercover online, was on a social media app when Allred contacted him, the documents say.
The documents allege Allred asked “Are you looking?” and that he wanted to “watch porn.” Allred also suggested he perform a sex act on the detective; he asked the detective to meet, prosecutors claim.
The charging papers say the detective “told Allred he was 13 years old and Allred stated he was okay with that.”
Allred later mentioned that he could get in trouble for meeting a 13-year-old. Yet he arranged to meet in a church parking lot, documents say. Police arrested him there.
