Randolph Stringer is charged with two counts of online solicitation of a minor because he told investigators he's met other young girls the same way and has had sex with as young as a ten year old boy.
Stringer is a 33-year-old man from Humble who neighbors call suspecting.
Last week Stringer was arrested at his home, arrested for exchanging a
string of sexually explicit emails with someone he thought was a
15-year-old girl. It turns out, it was an undercover investigator.
Sara Kinney, a spokesperson for the district attorney said, "A lot of

emails, Stringer says, "If I get you a phone will you be naughty for
me and let me eat your ass?" and "If i pick you up one day soon and get you a phone, would you
be kewel with hooking up and having some fun sex?"
"I hope he gets a lot of time for that. Just because I have young
children too," a neighbor said. "That is just sick. That's really
Stringer is due in court next week. If he is convicted, he will have to register as a sex offender.
