Man charged with Online Solicitation of Minor

WOODWAY, Texas - A Moody man assumes he's messaging a 16-year-old girl on social media, but it's really the police.

Woodway Police Department Detectives arrested 33-year-old Jimmy Lee Smith, of Moody, on Monday. He is charged with Online Solicitation of a Minor, which is a third-degree felony.

Smith was communicating with who he thought was a 16-year-old girl through a social media messenger. This account was actually controlled by Woodway PD officers.

Smith requested several sexually explicit photographs from undercover officers from the past few days, and also sent sexually offensive images of himself.

Smith was reminded several times of the girl's age and acknowledged he could get in trouble. He also asked the undercover officers to delete the messages.

Detectives obtained a warrant for Smith's arrest, and he was taken into police custody at his residence.
