New details have emerged in the case involving a foster parent who was arrested in an undercover sex sting. Reports say the foster child living in that home will not be removed.

According to the Albuquerque Journal, CYFD stated that Joshua Saavedra will no longer be living in the house. Saavedra is in jail where he is facing several charges. 

He is accused of agreeing to meet up with who he thought would be a child for sex. Detectives say he was talking with an agent posing as the mother of the fake child. 

Saavedra is expected in court Monday to see if he will stay behind bars until trial.
