CROWN POINT | Prosecutors charged a Lake Station man with sexting and having sex with an 11-year-old acquaintance.
Louis Pridemore, 18, was charged Wednesday with two counts of child molesting after the victim told police she had had oral sex with Pridemore on three separate occasions.
Pridemore is alleged to have sexted the girl 50 times before having sex with her in a camper, at Grand Boulevard Lake and finally at an abandoned house.
Court documents state the girl told police all three incidents occurred last December after the texting between them had become sexual.
The girl told authorities 50 texts involved Pridemore telling her what sexual acts he wanted her to perform.
The girl is alleged to have known Pridemore since the age of 4, according to court documents.
