Skagit sex offender arrested after Facebook sting
The Skagit Valley Herald reported that William Elms is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning in Skagit County Superior Court on two counts of immoral communication with a minor.
Police were tipped off by a woman who caught her teenage daughter's boyfriend sending lewd photos and messages to someone he believed was a 15-year-old girl. But the mom had fabricated the Facebook profile because she wasn't happy that her 17-year-old daughter was dating Elms and wanted to get law enforcement involved.
Elms was arrested Aug. 18 after being released from the Snohomish County Jail in Everett, where he was serving time for a probation violation.
