A man has been arrested for having inappropriate communications with an adolescent, according to authorities.

Christian Winterhalter, 45, was taken into custody by Union County detectives in Pennsylvania earlier this month after detectives discovered he sent nude images to the victim and in return solicited images from the teen.

He is also listed on Pennsylvania's sex offender registry and is considered a Pennsylvania resident.

Union county officials started looking in to the matter last June.

Winterhalter is facing multiple charges including sexual exploitation of a minor.

He remains in custody in Pennsylvania and is awaiting extradition to North Carolina.
