MCNAIRY COUNTY, Tenn. (FOX13) - On Tuesday Joe Kevin Horner turned himself into the McNairy County jail after a grand jury indicted him with two counts of Solicitation of a Minor and one count of Solicitation of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said it obtained indictments for the 590-year-old Michie resident, who is accused of trying to solicit who he thought to be a teenage girl online.

TBI Agents began investigating Horner on Oct. 10, 2013, after receiving information from a police detective in Fairfax, Va., who posed as a 14-year-old girl online and engaged in an ongoing sexual chat with the McNairy County man.

During the course of the TBI investigation, Agents seized Horner's iPhone and discovered several messages sent between Horner and the detective posing as the girl, along with an explicit picture believed to be of Horner.
 
On Monday the McNairy County grand jury returned indictments against Horner.

He's being held on a $20,000 bond.
