Press Release: Tallahassee Police Department
A man is arrested after attempting to solicit a 12-year-old girl online.
The 12-year-old girl ("the child") was in fact, fiction, created by the Tallahassee Police Department in an undercover sting operation.
27-year-old Paul Andrew Gordy responded to an ad online posted by an undercover investigator, targeting individuals trying to solicit minors.
Gordy initiated communication on June 14, 2013, and asked "the child" for a nude photograph, to prove she was, indeed, a child.
Over the course of the investigation, Gordy sent "the child" nude and obscene photographs, and solicited to meet him for a movie, in which to perform oral sex on him. He also tasked "the child" to watch pornographic videos and explained different sex acts in rich detail.
Gordy was arrested on August 25, 2013 on the following charges: Online Solicitation of a Minor (4 counts), Transmission of Harmful Material to a Minor (3 counts), and Unlawful Use of a 2-way Communications Device.
