COLUMBUS (WCMH) – A registered sex offender was arrested Tuesday after police say he had a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl.
According to court documents, 22-year-old Shatwan McCarrel is charged with a felony count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
The girl’s father called Columbus Police on Monday after he found inappropriate messages on her Facebook page. The messages contained references to condom usage and McCarrel, according to affidavit.
The encounter allegedly took place at a vacant home next door to where McCarrel lives.
McCarrel was ordered to register as a Tier II sex offender after a 2012 conviction for the same charge.
McCarrel appeared in court yesterday where bond was set at $250,000
