WINTER SPRINGS, Fla. – A Winter Springs man is behind bars in the Winter Springs jail after he is accused of trying to communicate online with someone he believed to be an 11-year-old girl.

Paul Hanshaw, 48, was arrested on Wednesday in Winter Springs for solicitation of a minor, transmitting harmful images and possession of child pornography.

Investigators found communications where Hanshaw sent images and nude photos of himself. He is facing four counts in Virginia related to transmitting and soliciting photos.

Once Hanshaw was arrested by FDLE agents, they found child pornography on digital devices.

Hanshaw has no bond and is currently in the Seminole County Jail.
