A Sand Springs man faces multiple sex charges for allegedly having an inappropriate relationship with a 14-year old girl.
Cleveland Police arrested 20-year old Thomas Higgins. They said he admitted to exchanging explicit online photos with the teen and engaging in sexual acts.
The teen’s mother called police after she found questionable text messages on the teen’s cell phone. The teen told police they met on Facebook and had been talking for months before she snuck out of her house to meet him.
Higgins is being held at the Pawnee County Jail. He faces charges of Lewd Acts with a child under 16, two counts of rape by instrumentation, three counts of oral sodomy, and possession of child pornography.
