Sexual Solicitation Of A Minor Arrest
OCEAN CITY — An Ocean City man faces sexual solicitation of a minor charges this week after allegedly reaching out to his ex-fiance’s 14-year-old daughter to move to the resort with him and begin a sexual relationship.
The adult female victim told Ocean City police she and her 14-year-old daughter were set to move to the resort to live with her fiancé, identified as Edward Orefice, Jr., 37, until the couple broke off their engagement in June. A short time later, the adult female’s juvenile daughter told her she wanted to move to California and live with her friend, according to police reports. When asked how she intended to get to California, the juvenile reportedly told her mother she had $18 for a bus ticket.
The adult female knew a bus ticket from Baltimore County to Ocean City cost $18 because she had recently made the trip and began to become suspicious of her juvenile daughter’s real intentions and that she was secretly communicating with Orefice. Based on that suspicion, the adult female began looking at her daughter’s cell phone. When the daughter learned her mother was reviewing her cell phone, she ran away, but was located a short time later by Baltimore County Police.
