Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents arrested a 24-year-old man Wednesday for attempting to solicit a 10-year-old girl on the internet.

  • Frank Joseph Filomena, 24, arrested in Clermont
  • Girl's mom reported daughter receiving illicit material from man
  • Filomena booked into Orange County Jail

Authorities say the girl's mother told the Orange County Sheriff's Office that her daughter received sexually explicit material from a man. Deputies then sent the case to FDLE agents in Orlando.

In the course of the investigation, agents discovered additional evidence that they say shows Frank Filomena, 24, was both sending sexually explicit material and soliciting the 10-year-old to provide explicit material.

Investigators then met with Filomena at his home in Clermont and arrested him. Filomena is charged with transmitting material harmful to minors and using a computer to solicit a child.

The investigation is ongoing.
