Posted February 12, 2014
Scotland Neck, N.C. — Halifax County authorities said Wednesday that a Scotland Neck man has been arrested on a charge that he was sexting a 12-year-old girl.
Michael Eric Thomas, 21, is charged with disseminating obscenity to a minor under 13. He was released on a $5,000 bond.
A woman who frequently checks her daughter's cellular phone and social media account recently found that a man had sent a picture message of his genitals to the girl in early January, authorities said. Investigators found that the girl had met the man, identified as Thomas, at a church.
