Facebook post leads to arrest of sex offender in Fargo

Fargo police say a convicted sex offender was arrested after posting on Facebook that he's engaged to a 14-year-old girl.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo police say a convicted sex offender was arrested after posting on Facebook that he's engaged to a 14-year-old girl.

The Forum reports 20-year-old Tyler Howard Graening is charged with one count of Class A felony gross sexual imposition, one count of Class C felony failure to register as a sexual offender and one count of corruption of a minor, a Class A misdemeanor.

He has no recent address listed.

Court documents say Graening is a sex offender from Minnesota and a West Fargo police detective began investigating after he failed to register locally.

The police report says the girl told authorities she had been in a sexual relationship with Graening.
