Prosecutors say Wares communicated online with a 13-year-old New Jersey girl for three months in 2011. They say he used the fake Facebook account to pretend to be a child she knew and made her send photos and videos of herself engaging in sex acts.

Prosecutors say Wares met a 14-year-old girl online that year and drove to New Jersey and had sex with her.
