A Lufkin man has now been indicted on federal charges for allegedly driving to Pennsylvania and taking a 13-year-old girl he met on the Internet.

23-year-old Nathan Wedgeworth has been charged with coercion and enticement, travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct, and transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.

According to police, Wedgeworth went to the girl's home to pick her up with an intention to bring her back to Lufkin. The two were stopped in Arkansas and Wedgeworth has been in custody since.
