VAN WERT - An Anderson, Ind., man was arraigned yesterday in Van Wert Municipal Court on charges that he allegedly solicited a 14-year-old girl for sex over the Internet.
David Ramsey, 67, posted a $5,000 cash bond yesterday pending a preliminary hearing Nov. 21. He was charged on Thursday with importuning, a fifth-degree felony, after he arrived at a local hotel room to meet with what he thought was to be a young girl.
Sheriff's deputies said the investigation started Nov. 8 when Mr. Ramsey allegedly initiated a conversation to solicit sexual activity with the girl.
