An 18-year-old Racine man was charged with felony charges after he asked a 15-year-old boy for sex, according to a criminal complaint.

Dashawn Seay was charged with child enticement and soliciting a child for prostitution by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office on Thursday. If convicted of both charges, Seay faces up to 50 years in prison and fines up to $200,000.

According to the criminal complaint, Seay, a student at Horlick High School, allegedly propositioned the boy by texting him and asking him to perform a sex act on him in exchange for $200. The boy told school officials he was so upset that he left class. Seay told police that he didn’t realize how old the boy was, but knew that he was younger than him.

A cash bond was set at $7,500. A preliminary hearing has been set at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 27.
