Arlington Man Charged with Sexually Soliciting 12-Year Old Girl

An Arlington man has been charged with sexually soliciting a 12-year old.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says 19-year old Tyler Tessmer has been arrested after a week-long investigation. They say the investigation showed Tessmer solicited a 12-year old girl to engage in a sex act with him.

Authorities conducted a search warrant at his home, where they seized electronic devices and a large amount of drug paraphernalia. A warrant was issued for Tessmer’s arrest and he was later taken into custody at a home in Cresco.

Tessmer faces a felony charge of Lascivious Acts with a Child and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says this is an ongoing investigation and more charges could be filed.
