A 29-year-old Wilmington man is facing a misdemeanor sex charge in Will County.

The Will County Sheriff’s Office said Nicholas Cox allegedly showed two underage female juveniles inappropriate photos on his phone from his vehicle on Lakewood Drive in Wilmington around 8:20 p.m. on July 9.

A short time later, Cox was arrested at his home in Wilmington after a neighbor memorized and reported his license plate number.

Cox has been charged with distributing explicit material to a minor and remains in the Will County Jail on a $40,000 bond.
