LAKEVIEW, Mich. – A 32-year-old Lakeview man is in jail after allegedly texting a 13-year-old girl to meet up with him for “immoral purposes.”

Michigan State Police say the man texted the girl trying to get her to leave her home at night and meet up with him.  Police set up a sting to meet the man on a dark, secluded road and the man was met by an undercover female officer and arrested.

Online jail records identify the man as Walter Johnson

The man is expected to be charged with Soliciting a Minor for Immoral Purposes.  The Montcalm County Prosecutor may have more charges.

    I would be asking FIRST where are the records off HIS phone showing these texts? OF COURSE if a person wig priors is pulled over in a “sting zone” they are going straight to jail. I’m just keeping g an open mind, as these “alleged” cases almost always end up turning ugly for the first suspect due to poorly reported, biased news coverage

      I know for a fact this is not his first time! Look his name up and you will see he is registered as a sex offender from the past! I have talked to 2 other ppl who knew him as well was telling me about his past criminal record! So no the news don’t have it wrong. Research someone before posting.

    I know who this is and it’s very sick and sad! He actually went to the same school we went to. I would have never believed that he would have been a monster! I am so glad that the officers caught him before he could have actually had the chance to do anything to her! My heart goes out to this 23 yr olds family and any other families he actually did this to! He needs to stay behind bars for the rest of his life so we know our children are going to be protected from these kinds of sick monsters!
