An 18-year-old man who allegedly tried to solicit sex from an 11-year-old girl on Facebook was arraigned Friday in Toledo Municipal Court.

Destin Garcia, of 3134 Glencairn Ave., is charged with one count of importuning and was ordered to remain in the Lucas County jail in lieu of $50,000 bond.

According to court records, the suspect, on Feb. 24, sent Facebook messages to the girl and said he wanted to have sex with her. During the conversation, the girl told him she was 11, according to the complaint.

Mr. Garcia is to appear in court again on March 14.

A scum bag for sure.......but no wonder our jails are over flowing. We are filling them with non violent suspects who have not even gone to trial! Inocent until proven guilty.


Ok but if they have proof such as actual messages, get people like this off the streets before he actually gets to an 11 year old or possibly younger. In cases like this you can't let them just go.


There are SO many floozies out there giving it you really need to beg it off an 11 year old????? SICK !


I'd like to know why, at 11 years old,,, that kid is on that F'n site to begin with?


On Facebook?


Yeah, FB, what better way to lure kids? it's starting to be more like a hookup site. Did she even know him in person? Shouldn't some of that stuff be monitored.


Well at 11 she or her adult chaperone had to LIE about her birthdate/age to even sign up for an account.

Anything a child of eleven does online should be monitored.
