The FBI arrested 44-year-old Larry Lewis Hudson for allegedly luring girls from multiple states to engage in online sexual activity.

According to a press release from the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, Hudson, who's a registered sex offender, had multiple accounts on websites like Meetme, Meet24, and Kik. The girls he was talking to are between the ages of 13-16.

He also sent inappropriate pictures of himself and pictures of child pornography to an undercover Pinal County Sheriff's detective posing as a teen.

Hudson is currently facing federal charges of attempted online enticement of a minor, transmitting obscene material to a minor and two counts each of distribution of child material to a minor.
