MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – A New York man is in the Marshall County Jail with no bond after meeting up with a 14-year-old Marshall County girl via the internet.

Dakota Ski-Elesed Pielow, 20, Dundee, NY, has been arrested and charged with first degree sexual abuse and sodomy.

According to the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office, after Pielow established an online relationship with the 14-year-old girl, he arranged a meeting and took a bus from New York to her Marshall County home.

The mother of the girl, unaware of the online relationship and meeting, caught the two during physical contact, causing Pielow to flee from the home.  He was later apprehended in Scottsboro at a retail shopping center by Jackson County sheriff’s deputies.
