JACKSON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Jackson County man has been charged with allegedly trying to solicit a young girl.

A parent helped launch the investigation, which is why law enforcement said this should serve as a reminder why parents need to know what their young children are doing on social media.

22-year-old Christopher Lee King is charged with enticing a child for immoral purposes. Sheriff's officials said they received a complaint from a woman who noticed conversations her twelve-year-old daughter was having with King.

When law enforcement got involved, they learned the correspondence was sexual in nature. King was arrested and booked into the county jail on Tuesday.

King is being held on a $20,000 bond.
