EL PASO, Texas (AP) -

West Texas officials say a man has been arrested after he was accused of inducing an underage girl to have sex with him with the promise of help in becoming an adult film star.

An El Paso police statement says Jacob Alejandro Martinez posted a classified ad on the internet site Craigslist in hopes of recruiting aspiring porn actresses. It says the 23-year-old man was then contacted by a girl younger than age 18 with whom he communicated and eventually had sex with.
    
Martinez was arrested Jan. 10 and is booked into the El Paso County Jail with bond set at $50,000. He's charged with sexual performance by a child and a probation violation.
    
Court records show no details of an attorney for Martinez.
