Somerset man charged with sending sexual messages, nude photo to 12-year-old girl

A Somerset man has been arrested after he allegedly sent nude photos of himself to a minor, according to the Pulaski County sheriff's office.

Gregory Evan White, 26, was arrested Wednesday on charges of unlawful use of electronic means to induce a minor in sexual activities and distribution of obscene matter to minors.

In December, the sheriff's office began investigating a report by the father of a 12-year-old girl, the sheriff's office said in a news release.

The father had discovered inappropriate text messages and a photo of male genitalia on his daughter's cellphone, the news release said. White admitted to detectives that he had sent the messages and the photo.

White was being held in the Pulaski County jail Wednesday on a $50,000 cash or property bond.
