Cherokee County, NC Man Admits to Luring Young Girl Online
Cherokee County, NC Sheriff Keith Lovin says Ryan Lester Greene, 36, plead guilty to sexual battery recently.
Greene was arrested in January 2012 after Cherokee County officers got word from Georgia that Greene was accused of corresponding via the internet with a juvenile girl, then meeting her and taking her back to Cherokee County where the two had sex.
Judge Jeffrey Hunt sentenced Greene to 45 days in jail, but the jail time was suspended. Greene was placed on supervised probation for 18 months and is required to register as a sex offender for 30 years.
