A 22-year-old man is in Mercer County Jail today for reportedly arranging to have sex with a teenage girl.
John McDermitt of Celina faces charges for criminal trespass and possession of marijuana, according to jail records. Mercer County Sheriff Jeff Grey said the prosecutor's office will review additional charges against McDermitt, which could include felony importuning.
McDermitt allegedly set up an encounter with a 15-year-old girl through Facebook and text messaging, and then traveled to her rural Rockford area home to meet her, according to the sheriff's office.
He was arrested at the girl's home yesterday around 12:30 a.m.
