GADSDEN COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - A 19-year-old is facing multiple charges for sending sexually explicit texts and images to minors. 

Jacob Hatfield, 19, of Chattahoochee was arrested on Monday.

He was arrested on two counts of obscene material and distribution and two counts of obscene communication, both of which are 3rd degree felonies. 

The Gadsden County Sheriff’s Office says that the victims came forward in November 2017 when information was received about several sexually elicit texts and images on their phones from Hatfield.

A follow-up investigation of the allegations led deputies to arrest Hatfield. He was booked in the Gadsden County Jail without incident. 

Both victims were under the age of 18.
