FLOYD COUNTY, Ky. (WSAZ) -- A registered sex offender from Virginia is behind bars in Kentucky.
The Floyd County Sheriff's Office says a deputy was on a routine patrol Saturday night when he noticed a vehicle parked in the back of a parking lot at Middle Creek National Battlefield.
The deputy says when he approached the vehicle, he found Earnest Bradley Hall Jr., 43, of Bristol, Va., engaging in sexual activity with an underage male.
Hall face several felony charges including use of a minor in a sexual performance. Investigators say more charges are expected to be filed in Virginia, where Hall is a registered sex offender.
Investigators say they believe the two met online.
Hall is being held in the Floyd County Detention Center on a $250,000 cash bond.
In his initial court appearance, Hall pleaded not guilty. He is expected back in court later this month.
