— A Fort Bragg soldier was charged Friday with using the Internet to lure someone he thought was a teenage girl into a sexual relationship.

Pvt. Jonathon Michael Hogue, 20, of HHC 4th POG Bldg. D-1910, was arrested in Stedman and charged with one felony count of soliciting a child via the Internet. He is being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center on a $25,000 secured bond.

A detective with the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office posed as a young female, and Hogue made arrangements over the Internet to meet the "girl" at an undisclosed location in Stedman Friday evening and engage in sexual acts.

Hogue is scheduled to appear in court Monday.
