Man uses library computer to make arrangements for sex

JONESBORO, AR  (KAIT) – A Jonesboro man who plead guilty to computer child pornography in January of this year was arrested on similar charges Wednesday, according to Jonesboro Police. He was given a $30,000 bond.

Wesley Alexander Hull, 23, of Jonesboro was charged with failure to comply with sex offender reporting requirements and computer child pornography after he arranged to have sexual intercourse with a juvenile over the internet. Hull also admitted to deleting nude pictures of the girl on his Facebook account.

Investigator Wes Baxter said Hull was using a non-registered Facebook account at the Craighead County Jonesboro Public Library when a witness noticed him chatting with a girl. As the witness was on the phone with police, he continued to watch Hull on a computer.

According to the witness, the same female that Hull was speaking to when he was arrested last year was speaking to him.

When Baxter arrived at the library, he approached Hull and asked him what he was doing. Both men then walked away from the computer.

During the initial interview, Hull told Baxter he was chatting with a female who was about 16-years old. Baxter then asked to see the computer.

Upon viewing the computer, Baxter discovered a Facebook conversation with sexually explicit messages. Hull told Baxter he had been having sex with the girl as well.

After Hull was read his Miranda Rights, he told Baxter that he had been having sex with the girl for the past three months. He said the girl usually walked to his house to have sex while his mother was away at work.

Hull was originally arrested May 6, 2013 and plead guilty to computer child pornography and distributing/possessing child pornography in January, according to the report.
