A man was arrested in McCracken County Wednesday, accused of receiving naked pictures of an underage girl, according to the McCracken County Sheriff’s Department.
Deputies say the arrest is the result of an investigation over the course of several months. They say 59-year-old Randall Shoemake was communicating with a 17-year-old girl by cellphone before her father discovered text messages sent to her.

Shoemake was charged with possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor, and he was jailed in the McCracken County Regional Jail.
