Deputies: St. Petersburg man sent sexual texts, photos to teen girl

ST. PETERSBURG — A 19-year-old man was arrested Monday on charges that he sent texts and photos of a "sexual nature" to a 14-year-old girl, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office.

Derek Huden, of 6216 Burlington Ave. in St. Petersburg, was arrested on two counts of prohibited use of a computer service or device.

Contact between Huden and the girl — who was not named by the Sheriff's Office because of her age — took place in December, deputies said.

Huden sent the girl a photo of him exposing himself on Dec. 23, according to deputies. Then on Dec. 26, deputies said, he texted her a request: send him a photo of her exposing herself.

The victim's mother discovered the texts and called the Sheriff's Office. Huden turned himself in to the Pinellas County jail on Monday evening. The amount of his bail was not available.
