The Noble County Prosecutor's Office says they have charged 25 year old Jay King with a single count of child solicitation, a Class C felony.

The Prosecutor's Office says King allegedly used his Facebook account to try to get a 15 year old girl to have sexual contact with him.

An initial complaint was made to police by the girl's relative.

The teen girl was interviewed by investigators and it is believed no physical harm was done to her.

King has several other unrelated charged pending against him.  Those are residential entry, possession of methamphetamine, and possession of paraphernalia.

The Prosecutor's Office says the solicitation case is, "a stark remind of how important it is for parents to monitor their children on the internet".
