— A Beloit man accused of enticing what he thought was an 11-year-old girl has waived his right to a preliminary hearing.

Jonathon F. Lincoln, 32, of 828 Daffodil Lane, Beloit, is charged with one count of using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime as well as possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.


Detectives posing as an 11-year-old girl arranged to meet Lincoln for sex on Feb. 2 at Taco Bell, 3001 Milwaukee Road, Beloit, according to the criminal complaint.


Authorities were alerted by a Louisiana woman who was using a dating website when she saw a user having a conversation with a girl whom the woman thought was younger than 13. The woman pretended to be an 11-year-old girl and initiated a conversation with Lincoln, according to the criminal complaint.


Lincoln's arraignment is scheduled for 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 28. He was released from the Rock County Jail after posting a $5,000 bond.
