SO: Man targeted friend’s son through Facebook

A Mississippi man is accused of trying to solicit a Mobile County teen for sexual activity via Facebook.

Mobile County Sheriff’s Deputies arrested Edwin Turner, 63, after they say he reached out to a juvenile male known to him and insisted on paying to perform oral sex.

Deputies say the man knew the boy through hunting activities with his family.

Officials say the juvenile told a relative about the vulgar messages.

That relative then decided to continue the Facebook conversation with Turner, pretending to be the boy.

Turner allegedly wrote he did not care that the boy and his friends were underage as long as no one said anything.

Turner has a history of DUI and theft of property.

FOX10 News will continue to track his case.
