A Greenwood man was arrested after police said he had a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl.

Todd Petty, 24, 1 S. Middle St., faces three charges of sexual misconduct with a minor.

Police said the man had a relationship with the girl between March and May, according to a report from the Greenwood Police Department.

The 14-year-old’s mother suspected an inappropriate relationship when she saw her daughter with Petty at the mall and library, the report said.

Petty and the girl used fake names to communicate through Facebook. Police found the two had talked in messages about the possibility of the girl getting pregnant and the chance that Petty could go to jail if she got pregnant, the report said.

Petty was taken to the Johnson County jail, where he was being held on $60,000 bond.
