CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - A 19-year-old Charleston man has been arrested and accused of traveling to Florence to have sex with a minor.
Attorney General Alan Wilson said Ian James Willis was charged with criminal solicitation of a minor, dissemination of obscene material to a minor and attempted criminal sexual conduct with a minor second-degree.
Investigators say Willis communicated electronically with the minor victim in Florence County for about a month. A report states Willis sent a photo of his exposed genitals using social media, as well as sexually explicit messages.
According to authorities, when Willis traveled to Florence on Aug. 14 to meet the victim, he was arrested by the Florence County Sheriff's Office.
