GEORGETOWN, SC (WMBF) - A man from New York is facing serious charges in Georgetown County for allegedly contacting a minor girl and sending her inappropriate messages on her cell phone.

That man, 24-year-old Chaz Weese of Waterford, NY, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with the criminal solicitation of a minor and unlawfully disseminating obscene material to persons under 18.

An incident report from the Georgetown County Sheriff's Office indicates Weese sent text messages and photos of himself to a teen girl. Those photos and messages were found after the girl's mother took her phone as a punishment.

One of the messages indicated that Weese wanted to travel to South Carolina to spend time with the girl without her parents finding out. The incident report states the mother had met Weese years ago, but did not indicate if they kept in touch.

The girl's school was immediately notified not to release her to anyone but her parents, and just two months after the report was filed Weese was taken into custody.

His bond was set at $25,000.
