PALM COAST, Fla. – Flagler County Sheriff Rick Staley is strongly urging all parents to monitor their child’s online activity after his deputies investigated a man accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a teenage girl he met via online gaming.
Oleg Walker, 28, of Palm Coast, is charged with one count of using computer services to solicit a child and one count of unlawful use of a communication device.
According to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, Walker had an inappropriate relationship via text with a 14-year old girl he met through an online game called King of Avalon.
