CENTERVILLE, Utah (AP) -- A Pennsylvania man is facing charges after allegedly being caught in the bushes at a Centerville elementary school with a 15-year-old boy he met on the Internet.
Thirty-one-year-old Charles Lamar Ness of Skippack, Pennsylvania, was charged with third-degree felony unlawful sexual activity with a minor and enticing a minor over the Internet, a class A misdemeanor.
Ness appeared yesterday in Second District Court in Farmington.
Police say an officer spotted a rental car in the school parking lot Friday night. The officer got his dog out to go for a walk and noticed the car was empty.
The officer was returning to his car when he spotted the suspect and the teenager in the bushes near the school.
