AURORA, Colo. -- (KDVR) -- It began with a Craigslist ad and ended with a guilty plea for the former president of the Adams County School District 14 board after he was busted in an internet predator sting.

Robert Vashaw, 50, pleaded guilty to a felony count of attempted sex assault on a child and a misdemeanor count of child abuse in mid-April.

Vashaw was arrested by the Aurora Police Department on Sept. 9, just minutes after he bought condoms to meet with a 12-year-old girl for sex.

His criminal case was immediately sealed, but after his guilty plea, the case was unsealed and the FOX31 Problem Solvers were able to obtain the case file, including Vashaw's videotaped confession to an Aurora detective.

"Are you a monster out there looking for 12-year-old girls?" a detective asked Vashaw.

Vashaw told the detective he's never met with a minor before and said he was caught on his first attempt to do so.

Vashaw admitted to posting an ad in the personals section of Craigslist on Sept. 6, titled "Daddy Daughter Role Play."

The ad read in part, "Daddy knows you've been a naughty girl. I looked at your computer today and saw all the naked pictures of boys. I'm going to tell Mommy unless you do something for me?? Would you like to play?"
