A father checking into his daughter’s facebook might have prevented a serious crime from occurring.   The Henry County Sheriff’s office was called concerning an incident in which a subject tried to contact a 13 year old girl through Facebook, with the alleged intent to have sexual relations.  That investigation led to the arrest of 18 year old Trent Newkirk of West Bloomfield, Michigan, who was charged with Importuning.   It’s alleged this contact on Facebook for sexual relations occurred June 13th and 14th.    Trent Newkirk was part of a BMX bicycle tour that made stops in a couple of HenryCounty schools recently.     Newkirk was arraigned on the fifth degree felony charge, with bond set at $25,000.   It’s believed that bond was posted; and the defendant is scheduled back in court on Thursday.
