Panama City man arrested for allegedly soliciting minor for sex

WALTON COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - A Panama City man is behind bars in Walton County after allegedly attempting to solicit a minor for sex.

Walton County Sheriff's officials say Christopher Jackson, 26, thought he was talking to a 14-year-old girl on social media, but was really talking to an undercover officer.

They say during the conversation, Jackson's comments got increasingly sexual in nature and he asked for nude pictures. They say Jackson also indicated he wanted to have sex with the minor.

Jackson is charged with two counts of using a computer to solicit a child for sex, traveling to meet a minor for sex, and using a two-way communication device to facilitate a felony.
