Ind. Amish Sexting Suspect Drove Horse, Buggy to Sting

MILROY, Ind. --

A Milroy man who police said showed up at an undercover sting in a horse-drawn buggy has been charged with soliciting a 12-year-old girl for sex.

Willard Yoder, 21, who is Amish, sent 600 texts, nude pictures and videos to the girl, saying he wanted to have sex with her, Connersville police said.

The girl's mother discovered the texts and went to police, who then set up a sting at a local restaurant.

When Yoder arrived in his horse-drawn buggy to meet the girl, he was arrested on four counts of soliciting a minor, police said.

Investigators said Yoder later confessed to sending the texts. He was released on bond.
