Wilson is currently being held at the Seneca County Jail on charges of importuning and attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

The investigation was led by Detective Eric England, who “worked tirelessly to gather evidence to get Wilson off the street and away from minors,” TPD said.

Detective England was assisted by officers from the Tiffin Police Department, Fostoria Police Division, Seneca County Sheriff’s Office, and the Seneca County Drug Task Force.
