A White Plains self-employed personal trainer has been charged with trying to solicit sex from an undercover officer posing as a 13-year-old girl.      

Edward Lee III was arraigned Wednesday on charges of attempted rape and attempted patronizing a prostitute.      

The Westchester District Attorney Janet DiFiore said Lee allegedly had several email conversations with the alleged victim's stepfather, also an undercover investigator.

He allegedly discussed various sex acts he would engage in with the girl in exchange for money.      

The DA said the conversations occurred between Sept. 16 and Wednesday.   

Lee is being held in lieu of $5,000 cash or bail bond.      

Information about his attorney wasn't immediately available.
