Indiana’s Connersville Police Department allege Willard Yoder, 21, used to send 600 texts, as well as nude photos and explicit videos to the phone of a 12-year-old girl.
Yoder is (or was) a part of the religious-based community of the Amish. Aside from the popular misconceptions, members of the Amish do use cell phones, but often aren’t alowed to in their homes.
The girl reported that she started receiving texts from a number she didn’t know. Her mom texted back to the random number, pretending to be her 13 year old daughter ( who is actually 12). After Yoder was aware that he was texting a 13 year old girl, he continued to text her and request nude photos, also sending his own.
Sometime before the 600 texts and picture mark, the girl’s parents delivered their evidence to the police, who took over with a sting operation. Arranging to meet the girl at the Takehome Restaurant in Milroy, Indiana, where Yoder texted they would have sex in his horse-drawn buggy, he arrived at the agreed upon time (via the agreed-upon horse and buggy), to meet the cops instead.
