LEBANON, Pa. (WHTM) – A city man is jailed after police say he brought a 15-year-old Georgia girl to Pennsylvania for sex.
Joseph O’Neal, 20, drove to Floyd County, Georgia after meeting the teen on a social media website, knowing she was 15 years old. He brought her to Lebanon on Sunday and eventually learned she had been reported missing, but he made no efforts to contact police or return the girl to authorities, police said.
Officers found O’Neal with the missing teen after a call Thursday from the FBI.
He is charged with statutory sexual assault, indecent assault, aggravated indecent assault, interference with the custody of children, concealment of whereabouts of a child, unlawful contact with a minor, and corruption of minors.
His bail at the county prison was set at $100,000.
