Man accused of sending inappropriate texts to 14-year-old girl

A 28-year-old man is accused of "sexting" a 14-year-old girl, Georgetown police said.

Jose A. Garcia was charged early Monday after he allegedly arrived at the home of the girl around 3 a.m., Georgetown Police spokesman Capt. Robert Swanigan said. Police were waiting after they learned of Garcia's arrangement to meet the girl.

Garcia is a friend of the family, and the girl's grandmother became concerned when she saw inappropriate texts on the girl's cellphone, Swanigan said.

Garcia was charged with unlawful transaction with a minor. He was also charged with fleeing and evading after he briefly eluded police. The case is still under investigation.

Garcia was being held in the Scott County jail.
