OPELOUSAS - An 18-year-old man has been arrested for what authorities say were inappropriate text messages to a 14-year-old girl, including "you better be worth risking going to jail."

The St. Landry Parish sheriff's spokesman, Maj. Eddie Thibodeaux, says George Thomas Wiley III of Krotz Springs is free on $13,500 bond after his arrest Thursday on charges including computer-aided solicitation of a minor.

Sheriff Bobby Guidroz says in a news release that a parent called detectives after checking the girl's text messages.

Guidroz says the jail comment came after a question about the girl's age.

He says Wiley acknowledged sending the texts to the girl and to receiving a picture of her breasts through Snapchat.

A call to the only George Wiley listed in the area was not immediately returned.
