An Amish man from Milford, Ind., who pulled into a police sting operation in a horse and buggy has been charged with soliciting a 12-year-old girl via sexting.
Willard Yoder, 21, allegedly sent more than 600 text, picture and video messages to the local girl that he didn’t know, including solicitations for sex and naked images of himself.
She is not Amish.
“[Yoder] told me several times that he just randomly chose that [telephone] number,” Det. Craig Pennington of the Connersville Police Department said. “He just punched a number, hoping for a reply. If that is true, that’s kind of scary because I’m sure that’s not the first time that ever happened.”
