Moorhead man pleads guilty to luring a child

WAHPETON, N.D. – A Moorhead man pleaded guilty Tuesday in Richland County District Court to one count of luring a minor by computer.

According to court documents, 25-year-old Travis Bock drove to Wahpeton to meet someone he thought was a 14-year-old girl for sex.

The person was actually a Wahpeton police officer who had been in contact with Bock on and off since December. Police seized several computers from Bock’s Moorhead home and took his cellphone.

Luring by computer is a Class B felony. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
