FARMINGTON — A Herriman man accused of trying to lure a 13-year-old girl into having sex with him has been charged.
Paul Erich Von Schirmacher, 38, was charged Thursday in 2nd District Court with enticing a minor, a second-degree felony; and two counts of dealing in harmful materials to a minor, a third-degree felony.
Starting on Oct. 6, Von Schirmacher "communicated by social media with an undercover officer that (he) thought was a 13-year-old girl," prosecutors said. He sent "multiple pictures of his genitals to the officer and arranged to meet the officer for sex," according to charging documents.

An initial court appearance in the case is scheduled for Friday.
