Man Indicted in Child Sex Case Pleads Guilty
A man who had been indicted in a child sex case investigated by the Internet Crimes Against Children Unit of the Clay County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Homeland Security has pleaded guilty to a charge of trying to entice a minor to have sex, according to court records.
The man was arrested in November in Clay County and is being held in a federal holding facility in Baker County.
According to the Sheriff’s Office, the arrest came during an investigation that included sex offenses on two minor children.
The Sheriff’s Office said the man traveled to meet with additional children for illegal activities.
