WYNNE, AR- A Wynne man was arrested on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 following an undercover investigation by the First Judicial District Drug Task Force after attempting to meet a child for sex after church.
Dillon Hodge, 25, of Wynne, was in communication with what he believed to be a 14 year old female. When told she was 14 years old, Hodge messaged that he could be whatever age she needed him to be. Hodge also stated that his father was a police officer in a neighboring county. Hodge then sent, what he believed to be an underage female, photos of his genitalia, repeatedly offered to perform sex acts on the female, and repeatedly told her he wanted to meet up for sex. Hodge also sent a video of him performing a sex act on himself in the shower to the purported female. During the investigation, the underage female profile told Hodge that she was still in school and currently in class. Hodge responded, “If you were here Id be makin u feel me/I know u got sum sexy pics on ur phone”. Hodge then asked for pictures to make him sexually aroused. Hodge acknowledged that he knew the female was underage and still in school stating, “Tell the damn teacher I said let u go to the bathroom cuz u gotta do sumthin for me lol/an send me a titty pic”.
Hodge was arrested by special agents with the DTF, the Arkansas State Police, and detectives and officers with the Wynne Police Department after agreeing to meet the female after Wednesday night church for the purpose of having sex. Hodge was interviewed by DTF agents and at first denied any wrong doing. He then acknowledged having exchanged messages with what he believed to be a 14 year old female and admitted to sending media of his genitals and having sexually explicit conversations.
Hodge was initially arrested on a warrant by the Drug Task Force for Internet Stalking of a Child, 5-27-306, a Class B Felony, but DTF investigators say other charges will follow after Hodge was found to be in possession of a glass methamphetamine pipe at the time of his arrest. Hodge is currently being held in Cross County Jail on a $150,000 bond.
