MEMPHIS – The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has obtained indictments for a McNairy county man accused of trying to solicit who he thought to be a teenage girl online.
TBI Agents began investigating Joe Kevin Horner on October 10, 2013, after receiving information from a police detective in Fairfax, Virginia, who posed as a 14-year-old girl online and engaged in an ongoing sexual chat with the McNairy County man. During the course of the TBI investigation, Agents seized Horner’s iPhone and discovered several messages sent between Horner and the detective posing as the girl, along with an explicit picture believed to be of Horner.
On June 9th, the McNairy County Grand Jury returned indictments for the 50-year-old Michie man, charging him with two counts of Solicitation of a Minor and one count of Solicitation of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor. Today, Horner turned himself into the McNairy County Jail, where at the time of this release, he was being held on a $20,000 bond.
