The man who has been charged with sexual solicitation of a minor may have had more victims, according to the Montgomery County Police Department.

As a college student, making an extra buck now and then was very important. I started as a part-time reporter since I was 19 yo, and I couldn’t believe it might become a long-time career. I'm happy to be part of the Virginian Tribune's team.
