A 21-year-old Monroe County man was indicted Tuesday on allegations he sent explicit text messages to a 12-year-old girl and tried to "facilitate a meeting" for sex last year.

Mitchell Jared Harrison is charged with criminal attempt to commit child molestation and dissemination of pornography to minors, according to an indictment filed in Bibb County Superior Court.

Harrison allegedly met the girl on Facebook and sent her photos of his genitals "with the intent to arouse or satisfy the sexual desires of either the child" or himself, according to the indictment.
