BOONVIILE, Ind. – A southwestern Indiana man accused of sending unwanted and sexually explicit Facebook messages to underage girls is facing 55 charges and facing up to 160 years in prison if convicted.
The Evansville Courier & Press reports (http://bit.ly/1kNgi9M) that 22-year-old Joshua Bolin was arrested in Newburgh hours after being released from prison Dec. 23. He pleaded guilty in April to child solicitation and placed on probation. He was arrested after violating parole by drinking.
Prosecutors said they just days before being sent back to jail, Bolin sent sexually explicit Facebook messages to at least nine underage girls. They also claim Bolin had 39 images of child pornography on his home computer and cellphone.
Bolin is being held in the Warrick County Security Center. He has asked for a public defender.
