A man charged with sexual abuse is headed to trial after he exchanged nude photos with a 13-year-old girl.

Virgil Smith Jr., 29, is facing charges including sexual abuse of children and unlawful contact with a minor after police said he sent pictures of his genitals to a young girl.

Police said Smith also received similar pictures from the teen.

Smith waived his preliminary hearing but the district attorney’s office added a charge of selling obscene sexual material.

All charges are bound for trial.
