Ohio County Magistrate Joe Roxby found probable cause in the case against a Bridgeport man Friday.
Alex Galensky is being charged with Conspiracy to Commit First Degree Sexual Assault and Conspiracy to Commit Kidnapping.
These charges are a result of an investigation into chats that Galensky was allegedly having with another man where Galensky was trying to locate and rape a young girl in the North Park area of Wheeling.
Galensky's attorney suggests that since a young girl has not yet been located, she may not exist.
Additionally, West Virginia law enforcement officials suspect that the other man involved in the chats could be the girl's father.
