EL RENO, Okla. – A Bethany man is facing charges after allegedly trying to meet up and have sex with a young girl.

Deputies with the Canadian County Sheriff’s Office arrested 25-year-old Josh Parsons after he allegedly started talking to an undercover deputy posing as a 14-year-old girl on Facebook.

“I just checked out your photos, and you’re gorgeous,” Parsons wrote to the undercover deputy.

According to officials, Parsons began texting extremely graphic sadomasochism sex talk and sent a naked picture to the girl.

Deputies say Parsons adamantly told the girl they would not use protection when they had sex.

“I’m just glad we were able to take this man off the streets, and just pray that he hasn’t already victimized any children,” said Sheriff Randal Edwards.

Parsons was arrested on one count of soliciting sex with a minor through use of technology.
