A Campbell County man is arrested on solicitation and exploitation charges involving a minor.

A TBI investigation revealed that 39 year-old Kenneth Powers sent explicit messages to an underage female and attempted to solicit the victim to engage in sexual activity.
Last month, the Campbell County Grand Jury returned indictments charging Powers with one count
of Solicitation to Commit Aggravated Statutory Rape and three counts of Sexual Exploitation of a Minor by Electronic Means.

Powers was arrested yesterday (Thursday) in Claiborne County. His bond is set at $10,000.
