FREDERICK, Md. - A Frederick County, Maryland grand jury indicted a man for allegedly sexually soliciting a teenage girl.

The grand jury indicted Robert Staton of Trailview Court in Frederick in connection with a complaint the Frederick City Police Department received back in October of 2012.

Police say the victim told them Staton began sexually soliciting her online when she was 15 years old.

Police also say Staton pressured the girl to send pornographic images to him over the Internet.

Staton is charged with five counts of sexual solicitation of a minor, one count of solicitation of a minor to produce child pornography, and one count of possession of child pornography.
