A 74-year-old Mabank man was arrested in Henderson County after being accused of online solicitation of a minor female located in Montague County.
Chief Deputy Chris Hughes said the investigation stems from reported Facebook postings by Donald August Paninski to an 11-year-old female located in Nocona. Sgt. Jack Lawson is conducting the investigation.
