A man was indicted Tuesday by a Franklin County grand jury for seeking sex with a minor and distributing child pornography, according to Attorney General Andy Beshear and his Cyber Crimes Unit.

Joseph Michael Wagner, 33, of Georgetown, was indicted on one count each of the prohibited use of an electronic communication system to procure a minor for sex, and distribution of material depicting the sexual performance by a minor.

The indictment follows an investigation into Wagner’s online activity.

Beshear said the office’s investigators worked closely with the Ohio Attorney General’s Office, Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation to locate and ultimately apprehend Wagner.

Wagner is currently being held in the Franklin County Regional Jail on a $25,000 cash bond.

“In the Office of the Attorney General it is our job to be the chief advocate and protector of our Kentucky families,” Beshear said in a news release. “We are thankful for the support of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office on this case.”
