A Martinsburg man is facing felony charges after police say he tried to meet an 11-year-old girl for sex.
MARTINSBURG, WV- A Martinsburg man is facing felony charges after police say he tried to meet an 11-year-old girl for sex. 

West Virginia State Police arrested Wade E. Decker, 25, on Tuesday as he was walking down the street near Lambert Park Pool in Martinsburg to meet with the young girl. 

They say Decker had been in contact with the girl for weeks, and was sending sexually explicit photos to her on the computer. 

Police say the charges stem from an ongoing dialogue between Decker, the young girl, and an undercover officer. 

They say during the two week investigation, Decker expressed desires to engage in sexual acts with the juvenile and also tried to obtain nude photographs of the victim. 

Police say Decker is charged with multiple felony counts including; the solicitation of a minor using a computer, the display of obscene matter to a minor, the use of obscene matter to seduce a minor and the attempted use of a minor to produce obscene matter.  

Decker is currently being held at the Eastern Regional Jail on a $175,000 bond.
