(KMOV) -- Undercover investigators in St. Clair County said Tyson Schmitt allegedly contacted a 16-year-old girl on Facebook and tried to have sex with her.
Authorities set up a sting using her account and phone and say they caught the accused sex offender in the act.
But even though he's charged with multiple felonies, he has posted bond and was released until his trial.
“We are monitoring his behavior and other people know who his is now that we have brought this to light and he's been arrested so he's not going to get by with what he did,” said St/ Clair County Sheriff Rick Watson.
News 4 went to Schmitt's home Monday and even though he appeared to show his face in the window, he did not answer the door to answer to his charges.a
