A man from Republic has been placed on two years on probation after pleading guilty to a charge of attempted child endangerment.
Twenty-five year old Nicholas Hornback was originally charged with two counts of sexual misconduct involving a child under 15 after he sent nude photo's of himself to a Stone County detective posing as a 13 year-old girl on two separate occasions last year. Prosecutors say he voluntarily completed a sex offender treatment program.
He was also sentenced to 100 hours of community service. He will not have to register as a sex offender.
