Sex offender contacts teen via Facebook

Posted: Updated:

WARRICK COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - An Indiana mother was shocked when she learned someone was sending explicit photos to her daughter on Facebook.

The Boonesville mother said a man sent her 15-year-old daughter a picture of himself in womens underwear then began to ask her daughter questions, "He asked her then what size clothing she wore, specifically what size underwear she wore and pants. And she told him and he said well I can't fit those."

The mother decided to do some digging and discovered the 21-year-old man sending the pictures was a registered sex offender.

She contacted police who said under Indiana law sex offenders are allowed to use social media.

Police said they do monitor Facebook, but need the public's help to report any situations of this nature.
