DURHAM, N.C. – A registered sex offender in North Carolina is accused of sending a nude photo of himself to an 8-year-old girl in Pennsylvania.

Triblive.com reported that David Bryan Poplin, 29, of Durham, N.C., is accused of contacting the girl through Kik, a messaging application for mobile devices.

The victim’s mother reported to police last year that the man had contacted her daughter. The mother said the conversation was “sexually explicit.”

The suspect is accused of sending the girl a photo of his genitals after the two allegedly had a sexually explicit conversation.

Authorities arrested the suspect after a forensic examination of the iPad the girl had been using. Investigators tracked him to a home in Durham.

Poplin was registered as a sex offender in North Carolina in 2011 in connection to an incident involving a 15-year-old victim.
