Clarke County records show that Castleman was arrested on a felony charge of using a “computer service to seduce, solicit, lure, entice” a child to commit an illegal act.

Fulton County records list the charges as electronically furnishing obscene materials to minors, obscene internet contact with a child, solicitation of sodomy and using a computer service to seduce, solicit, lure or entice a child.
