Michie man charged in sexual exploitation case

June 11– The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has obtained indictments for a McNairy County man accused of trying to solicit who he thought to be a teenage girl online.

Joe Kevin Horner, 50, of Michie, turned himself in to McNairy County authorities last week.

According to the TBI,  agents began investigating Horner in October of last year after receiving information from a police detective in Fairfax, Va., who posed at a 14-year-old girl online and engaged in an ongoing sexual chat with him. 

During the course of the TBI investigation, agents seized Horner’s iPhone and discovered several messages sent between himself and the detective posing as the girl, along with an explicit picture believed to be Horner, the TBI said Tuesday.
