A Port Charlotte man is behind bars after he allegedly traded an iPhone for a sex act with an underage girl.
Kristian Gupta is charged with lewd and lascivious battery of a victim aged 12- to 16-years-old and false reports to law enforcement authorities.

The 19-year old man had told family members he was robbed at gunpoint, only to find out later that, that story was made up.

The 14-year old girl allegedly offered the sex act in exchange for the phone, which Gupta had put for sale online.
