PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (LEX 18) –A Prestonsburg man wanted on charges related to sexual exploitation of a minor has turned himself in.

Authorities say 26-year-old Bobby Blackburn was wanted for using an electronic communications system to procure a child for sexual activity. Authorities say that Blackburn allegedly used text messages to ask a juvenile to participate in a “threesome.”

Police obtained a warrant for his arrest last week but attempts to locate him were unsuccessful.

Blackburn turned himself in a week later and was lodged in the Floyd County Detention Center.
