Man attempted to solicit sex from teen girl, police say


Authorities say a Lancaster County man tried to solicit sex from a teenage girl.

Wayne R. Rhodes, 49, of Willow Street, offered the teen money in exchange for sexual contact, and he sent the girl numerous lewd messages and a lewd photo, the district attorney’s office said.

Rhodes used the Kik messenger app to contact the 17-year-old between January and June, when she went to police.

Millersville police said they searched Rhodes’s home and cell phone and found evidence that linked him to the illegal contact.

Rhodes is charged with felony counts of promoting prostitution of a minor and dissemination of obscene materials to a minor. He also faces a misdemeanor count of corruption of minors.

He was sent to Lancaster County Prison on $75,000 bail.
