Electronic Soliciation of a Child Arrest

(Etowah County, Alabama)  An Altoona man has been arrested in connection to electronic solicitation of a child, according to Sheriff Todd Entrekin.

 

“Peter Steven Ellis, 18, of Altoona, was arrested on July 20, and charged electronic solicitation of a child, which is a felony,” investigator Brandi Fuller said.
