KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A Kansas City man has been arrested and charged after police say he engaged in multiple sexual acts with a 14-year-old girl.

Michael Post, 22, is charged with felony statutory sodomy and felony statutory rape.

Post was arrested Sunday after police say he slept with a girl he met on Facebook.

During a separate police investigation, it was determined that the girl post met with was being pimped out. A cell phone was recovered revealing several texts about sex and a video of the victim engaging in a sexual act.

The victim also said that she had met several men on Facebook and had sex with them. One of the men that she met was Post. 

According to police, Post says the victim told him she was 17, but after officers showed him text messages in which she told him how old she was, he admitted that he did think she was 15 years old. Post told police he would have left the victim alone if he knew she was 14.

Post told officers that he only slept with the victim one time and that he wore a condom. He also said that nude photos were exchanged. He is being held on $50,000 bond.

Victim advocates from Metropolitan Organization to Counter Sexual Assault say it’s not just about stopping the crime when it’s found but also helping the victim.

"The shame element for the children or for the youth really is very large, because they have this belief that they have been equal partners in this crime. And so as a result of the shame factor being so high, the healing process can be quite complex and more complex than in cases where a child is abused in a more standard sort of way," Rene McCreary said.

McCreary also points out that parents should keep an eye out if they notice their child getting expensive gifts, particularly at times that are out of the ordinary or spending excessive amounts of time on their computers.
