Man charged with luring South Carolina teen to RI

Posted: Updated:

WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - Rhode Island police say they discovered an illegal relationship between a 19-year-old man and a 13-year-old South Carolina girl after authorities took her into protective custody at T.F. Green Airport.

Rhode Island State Police charged Andrew Silvestri of East Providence with indecent solicitation of a child and possession of child pornography Sunday, a day after the girl flew by herself from South Carolina to Rhode Island.

Authorities say Silvestri and the girl met on the Internet and they exchanged inappropriate texts and images including pornographic photos of the girl.

Silvestri was released on $10,000 personal recognizance. He couldn't be reached Tuesday. A phone listing for him couldn't be found, and it's not clear if he has a lawyer.

The girl is in the custody of Rhode Island child welfare officials.
