MOUNT NEBO, WV (WOAY) – A Nicholas County man is in jail for soliciting a minor over the internet.

Paul Michael McKinney-Odell, 42, of Mount Nebo, who is a registered sex offender tried to solicit a 15-year-old female for sex.  McKinney used an alias of “Mike Odell” to engage in a Facebook conversation asking the minor what color of panties she was wearing. McKinney also sent a picture of himself.  The defendant was told on two separate occasions that the female was 15-years-old.

McKinney has been arrested for prior convictions of sexual abuse and sexual assault.  He is facing four new charges for second offense violations for not registering as a sex offender nor updating his address.

McKinney is being held in the Central Regional Jail under a 40,000 dollar bond.
