The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office said a man was arrested for two counts of online solicitation of a minor.

Deputies said that 23-year-old John Wilson believed he was engaging in a sexually explicit manner with a child under 17. He was actually talking with deputies.

Wilson sent sexually explicit photos to the child.

Deputies said Wilson requested to meet the child for sex at a Gatesville park. He was met by Hamilton and Coryell County Criminal Investigators.

This is the third time Coryell County Sheriff’s Office and the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office worked together to arrest child predators.
