KENT COUNTY, Mich. — A Kent County man has been indicted on several charges surrounding child sexual abuse Wednesday, according to the U.S. District Court – Western District of Michigan, Southern Division.

Jeffrey Stephen Cole faces one count of sexual exploitation of a minor, one count of attempted coercion or enticement, and one count of possessing child pornography, according to a court document released by the U.S. District Court.

We’re told Cole persuaded a 3-year-old girl to participate in situations that led to the production of sexually explicit images. The court adds Cole also attempted to lure a 14-year-old girl through the internet to take part in sexual conduct.
