Josh Daniel George

Arrested in Faulkner County, AR on April 10, 2014

A former Faulkner County sheriff's office deputy who now serves as a correctional officer and a part-time police officer was arrested Thursday on a charge of sexual solicitation of a child, authorities said.

In an online chat, Josh D. George, 30, of Quitman began communicating with a person he believed to be the mother of two young children and later arranged to meet her and the youths "for sexual purposes," the Faulkner County sheriff's office said in a statement.

The purported mother he was chatting with was actually an undercover investigator, the sheriff's office said. George was arrested in the parking lot of a Conway grocery store after meeting the investigator there, police said.

George began working as a sheriff's deputy in 2007 before being fired in 2013 and rehired as a detention officer, the statement said. He reportedly quit that post a month later. He has been working recently as a correctional officer with the Department of Community Corrections in Little Rock and as a part-time patrol officer in Guy.

George remained in the Faulkner County jail Friday with no bail pending an initial court appearance set for Monday.

Too bad that hole didn't go all the way through his idiot head. No tolerance for pedophiles. None.

His character does not sound too good based on his job record. Once a pervert, always a pervert.
