A former Jonesboro resident has been charged with Child Solicitation for allegedly offering money to a 13-year old girl for sex.  But the man was arrested after the girl’s parents intervened and called police.
 
Police arrested 18-year old Michael Oliver...who only recently moved from Jonesboro to Peru...after he admitted to Gas City Police that he had sent Facebook messages to the girl offering money for sex while knowing she was only 13-years old.  The girl’s parents read the messages and then called police.
 
Authorities say there was no physical contact between Oliver and the victim and they are now are investigating to see if Oliver made similar offers to other girls.  He remains held in the Grant County Jail.
