Clearwater, Florida -- This afternoon a former church youth group leader faced a judge on charges he sent lewd text messages to a teen girl.
The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says 24-year-old Jeffrey Lachance admitted to texting photos of his private parts to a 15-year-old girl.
They say he asked the girl for sex in exchange for money. The girl showed the alleged text to her grandmother who called the sheriff's office.
Deputies say Lachance was arrested Wednesday after volunteering to go to the Sheriff's Office for an interview.
He admitted to the texts, saying he randomly found her on Facebook.
