A north suburban Evanston man is accused of engaging in sex acts with a 14-year-old boy he solicited through Craigslist.

Cook County prosecutors said Saturday Labe put an ad on Craigslist seeking sex with an 18-year-old. The 14-year-old answered the ad, and they began texting, arranging a visit to Labe's home on Oct. 16. The teen told Labe he was under 17 in the text messages, according to prosecutors, who said the boy went to Labe's home Oct. 16 and 17 and engaged in sex acts with him.

Labe, who has no criminal history, was ordered held Saturday on $50,000 bail.
