A man from Waynesboro is potentially facing imprisonment for his alleged involvement in the sexual exploitation of a teenager.

A 57-year-old man named Paul Wolfe is facing serious allegations of grooming and soliciting explicit pictures from a 17-year-old individual he encountered at Sheetz.

An investigation was initiated by the Waynesboro Police Department in February 2024 following a tip from Franklin County Children and Youth Services, as stated in a criminal complaint. In a previous interview with Youth Services, the victim reportedly mentioned meeting Wolfe at a Sheetz in Waynesboro during the summer of 2023.
