A 34 year old man from Kuna is in jail on charges of murder and soliciting sex from a 15 year old Meridian girl. 

 

34 year old Jeremy Lee Schmitz sent explicit photos and tried to meet up with the 15 year old for sex.

 

According to KTVB, Jeremy and the teen started talking online through the site letgo.com which allows people to buy and sell things online.

 

Officially say Jeremy was fully aware that the girl was just 15.

 

Luckily, the teens parents saw the photos and contacted police.

 

Schmitz was arrested Thursday night in Kuna at his probation and parole office and he's currently in the ADA Country jail.

 

Schmitz was on parole for a second degree murder case back in 1997 when he was just 14 years old.

 

In that case Schmitz was involved in killing Melvin A. Evenson with his 18 year old friend Daniel Eby during a robbery.

 

Back in '97 he was sentenced to life but became eligible for parole after 10 years.

 

He is now facing up to 25 more years in prison for felony sexual abuse of a child.
