Dade City man accused of texting teen to ask for sex

DADE CITY — A 30-year-old man is accused of sending text messages asking a teenage girl to perform sexual acts on him.

Joseph Ryan Fisher of Dade City, who was arrested Wednesday, exchanged numerous text messages with the girl, who was 14, according to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report. Deputies say the girl "clearly identified herself as a minor" during the exchanges.

Authorities did not say how Fisher first connected with the girl.

In an interview with detectives, Fisher "admitted to sending text messages to a female, who he believed to be 15 years old, wherein he asked the minor victim to perform sexual acts on him," the report said.

Fisher faces a charge of using computer services to solicit a child. He was released from the Land O'Lakes jail after posting $5,000 bail.
