James Jones (Al Cannon Detention Center)

A Seabrook Island man is in jail, charged with five counts of criminal solicitation of a minor.

Charleston County Sheriff’s Office detectives say James Jones, 69, coerced who he believed was a 14-year-old he met on the internet to perform sexual acts.

The 14-year-old actually was an undercover detective.

Jones will go before a judge Thursday morning.
