Area man arrested on felony sex charges

An area man was arrested on multiple felony charges for an alleged sexual relationship with a teenage girl.

Harry Wood Jr. (pictured), 33, of Springwood Lane, Marysville, was arrested Sunday afternoon following a traffic stop by the Union County Sheriff's Office near Marysville.

Deputies started their investigation on November 19th after receiving reports that Wood was sexting with a 15-year-old from the Raymond area.

Authorities then determined that Wood was involved in a sexual relationship with the girl.

He was charged with four counts of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor (F3) and single counts of illegal use of a minor in nudity oriented material (F2) and disseminating matter harmful to juveniles (F5).

Wood was arraigned in Marysville Municipal Court on Monday. Bond was set at $50,000.

During the investigation, deputies seized several cell phones, two computers, and a vehicle.

Sheriff Jamie Patton said, "Sexting is a crime and as you can see from this case, it can lead to very serious criminal charges, not to mention lifelong heartache for those involved."
