BEND, OR -- A Redmond man is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning to agree to a plea deal in connection with allegations he tried to lure a teen to a Bend park, last fall. Matthew Taylor Smith was arrested in October after he reportedly exchanged text messages with an officer he thought was a 15-year-old girl. 

 

He's charged with luring a minor and online sexual corruption of a child. The girl's mother is upset over the deal for probation. She tells KBND News Smith first contacted her daughter at a fast food restaurant, with a note requesting sex. They turned the information over to police who then posed as the teen in text messages.
 
She and her daughter plan to testify at the hearing, to push for Smith to serve jail time.
