Twenty-five year-old Kevin Lunsford was arrested Wednesday morning at his apartment in the 7700 block of East Kings Highway.

He's now facing felony carnal knowledge of a juvenile, sexual battery, computer-aided solicitation of a minor for sexual purposes, contributing to the delinquency and possession of marijuana.
