Bedford Co. Judge Gives NY Sex Offender 50 Years

Charles Olmstead

Bedford, VA - A registered sex offender from New York will spend 50 years in a Virginia prison for attempting to solicit young girls for sex online.

Charles Olmstead received that sentence Friday in Bedford County Circuit Court.

He was arrested last July by the Southern Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, after starting conversations with two investigators.

It was revealed at his sentencing that Olmstead continued to have sexually explicit conversations with underage girls after his arrest, using the jail phone.
