A Frederick man has been arrested for soliciting a minor online.

On 10/31/2012 the Frederick Police Department received a harassment complaint. During the initial investigation it was determined that an unknown person was sending harassing emails to a 16 year old victim’s employer.

This case was assigned to Det. Ames with the Criminal Investigation Division for follow-up investigation. Det. Ames was able to identify the suspect in this case as, George Robert Staton through various sources of information. The subsequent investigation revealed that Staton had been engaged in an on-line relationship with the victim after seeking out the victim and making contact with the victim over the internet. In this case, Staton sought out the victim specifically and knew who the victim was prior to making contact with her.

Det. Ames determined that Staton began sexually soliciting the victim when she was 15 years old over the internet. Det. Ames also determined that Staton solicited the victim to produce pornographic images which were sent to Staton over the internet.

On 02/28/2014 this case was presented to the Frederick County Grand Jury and an indictment was issued charging Staton with the below crimes associated with the sexual solicitation of a minor and the solicitation of a minor to produce child pornography.
