PIERCE TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -


A Pierce Township man is in custody after he sexually exploited at least two teenage girls, according to investigators.  
  
Dwayne Allen Mitchell, 25, is charged with three counts of unlawful Sexual Conduct with a minor and one count of Pandering Obscenity involving a Minor. 
  
According to the Pierce Township Police Department, a parent contacted police saying her 15-year-old daughter had been sexually exploited by Mitchell. 
  
“We had uncovered some text messages that the victims mom had brought to our attention and there were some comments in the text message about I’m 15 and you’re 25, you can get in trouble for this.   No one knows I’m not going to get  in trouble,” said Investigator Erica Haught. 
  
Investigators uncovered that Mitchell may have exploited three other underage girls. During interviews, Mitchell admitted to having sexual conduct with two female juveniles, according to the police department.    
  
Karen Hardy is Mitchell’s mother, she said “Growing up there were no signs, no signs at all that he was going to have an issue.” 


Hardy says she is still in shock after hearing the news, but the information is not a complete surprise. 

“I was disappointment {ed}. I was emotionally upset. When he said I’m going to jail. I knew right there it was his admission, I did something.” 
  
Hardy says she started receiving phone calls from people, saying they were hearing things. 

“I did talk to him about it he just denied and I think it was mostly because he didn’t want to tell his mom. How could you look at your mom and tell her what was going.” 
  
Police say Mitchell was cooperative with the investigation. And as for his mother, she giving some words of advice to the youth. 
  
“You know how old you are, please it not your fault, but don’t ever respond to anyone older that your age.”
