LOS ANGELES (WTVA) - A California man is expected to face federal charges in Mississippi next week. 

Ryan Abrams of Los Angeles is accused of online solicitation of a juvenile in Lowndes County. 

Lowndes County detective Lt. Tony Cooper said his office received a complaint earlier this year from the child's parents.

Cooper said the investigation showed the girl was being solicited explicit images and videos by Abrams on several social media sites. 

A federal grand jury in Oxford indicted Abrams on three federal charges in July. 

Court documents show he was arrested in Los Angeles on an out-of-state warrant from Mississippi.

Abrams is expected to be transported to Mississippi next week and housed in the Lafayette County jail until his court appearance.
