WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A West Lafayette man faces felony charges accused of using social media to trade pictures with a minor.
According to court documents, William Rose Junior is charged with four felonies, including child solicitation and exploitation. Prosecutors say he traded sexually explicit images on social media with a girl who was younger than 14 at the time. Rose was 22.
Investigators say they found images on Rose's cell phone that matched those he sent to the girl. Prosecutors say the two chatted over social media for about a month in the summer of 2016.
