Flushing man arrested for sex crimes against a child

Belmont County authorities charged 32-year-old with unlawful sex, child pornography

FLUSHING, Ohio -- A Flushing man has been arrested and charged after allegedly having sex with a minor and using that child to take pornographic photographs.
Authorities say 32-year-old Joshua Green was driving the child to a local destination, but at some point, he reportedly stopped along the way and had sex with the young girl. The story came to light when the child reported the incident to an adult, who happened to be a "mandatory reporter." A mandatory reporter is a person whose profession, such as social work, education or law enforcement, mandates that if they know or suspect abuse, they must report it.
The Belmont County Sheriff's Office then got help from the SPII Task Force, who contacted the suspect online in a sting operation. Green is charged with unlawful sex with a minor, corruption of a minor and illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material. His bond has been set at $25,000.
