ORIGINAL STORY 4/14/14
SCIOTO COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A 27-year-old is facing several charges after deputies say he met young girls online, had sex with one, and planned to have sex with another.

The Scioto County Sheriff's Office says they got a tip from a woman who said her 15-year-old daughter, and her 11-year-old friend, had met a man on the computer and had been in contact with him through Kik, Facebook and Snapchat.

Deputies say Brian Scott Sibley, 27, of Vinton, Ohio solicited nude photos from the girls, which they sent through cell phones. They also said he solicited sex from them, and did meet with one of the girls at her home in Minford, where they did engage in sexual activity on two different dates.

Scioto County Sheriff Marty Donini says deputies used the girls' accounts to arrange a meeting with Sibley on April 11. They say Sibley believed he was going to Minford to have sex with both girls. Detectives met him instead, and put him under arrest.

Sibley is charged with one count of attempted rape, two counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, one count of attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, and pandering obscenity involving a minor. More charges could be filed.

Sibley is being held on $105,000 bond.
