Alliance man accused of soliciting sex from middle school girls

Trial for an Alliance man accused of soliciting sex from Alliance Middle School girls has been set for June 13-14.

Felony charges filed against 22-year-old Phillip Holden include sexual assault by use of an electronic device and enticement by electronic communication device.

Court records state that on September 26, the Alliance Police Department responded to a complaint made by the Alliance Middle School principal regarding suspicions of a man soliciting sex from female students on facebook. An Alliance police investigator conducted a sting operation to confirm the principal's suspicion, and Holden was arrested and jailed.

Police then obtained a search warrant for Holden's apartment and recovered several items of a sexual and pornographic nature.

Holden is free after posting ten percent of a $15,000 bond.
