SAN ANGELO, Texas (Concho Valley Homepage) — A San Angelo man actively registered as a sex offender was arrested for using Snapchat to solicit a minor who lived in Louisiana, according to court records.

Fulton was booked into the Tom Green County Detention Center on July 10 at 10:22 a.m. on one charge of soliciting a minor under the age of 14. He has a posted bond of $250,000.

An affidavit filed within Tom Green County stated that a Tom Green County Sheriff's Office peace officer spoke with an investigator of the Ouachita Parish Sheriff's Office, which is located in Louisiana, on July 9 in regards to a case involving 32-year-old Joshua Fulton, a San Angelo resident. The investigator stated that Fulton was sexting a 13-year-old Louisiana girl using Snapchat.

The investigator also told the peace officer that their investigation into the case revealed that Fulton and the girl had sent nude images of themselves to one another. Additionally, the investigator said that they had copies of messages Fulton and the girl sent to each other, stating that Fulton "had told the girl he wanted to have sex with her, he wanted her to have his baby, and he wanted to come to Louisiana and pick her up and take her back to his house."

The investigator also told the TGSO officer that the girl informed Fulton of her age and that Fulton told her that he was from Texas.

According to the Texas Public Sex Offender website, Fulton is currently listed as a sex offender with a lifetime registration requirement. The affidavit stated that he was required to register as a sex offender following his conviction on March 15, 2016, for sexually assaulting a child. His most recent yearly required verification with the San Angelo Police Department was on Jan. 10, 2024.

The TGSO peace officer also spoke with an SAPD member who had been contacted by an investigator of the Oswego County Sheriff's Office in New York regarding a separate instance of Fulton soliciting an underage girl. The investigator told the SAPD member that the case they were working on involved Fulton sexting and exchanging nude media files with the New York girl.

The peace officer then contacted an SAPD Patrol Division officer who also spoke with the Oswego County investigator. The investigator told the SAPD officer that Fulton had "sent nude media files of himself masturbating to the underage girl," files that depicted "distinct tattoos" he had on his hands and arms.

Records reviewed by the peace officer also indicated that Fulton had been "caught using a Facebook account to message with an underage girl in a sexually explicit manner" in early 2019. Fulton admitted to messaging the underage girl during an interview, and it was discovered during an investigation that Fulton had multiple social media accounts not declared during his yearly sex offender registration.

The investigation into Fulton's most recent arrest is currently ongoing.

If you believe you or your child may be a victim of Fulton, the Tom Green County Sheriff's Office asks that you contact it or your local law enforcement agency and reference this investigation.
