HENRICO COUNTY, Va. - Police suspect an Ohio man accused of bringing an underage girl across state lines to engage in prostitution is attempting to raise his bail via his Facebook page.

Calvin L. Winbush of Cleveland Heights was arrested at a hotel in Glen Allen on January 3 and charged with interstate prostitution and pandering. Police said Winbush - also known as "Good Game" - drove a 15-year-old girl, along with two other women, from Ohio to Richmond.

CBS Affiliate WTVR reports that the suspect's Facebook page remains active, and authorities believe he is trying to use the site to raise his bail.

Winbush is being held on a $50,000 bond.

On his Facebook page, what appears to be a movie poster asks that donations be sent to an address on New Kent Highway - the location of Henrico County Jail East, where Winbush is being held.

"It's kind of upsetting that they're using the jail address to get money to get out," Henrico Sherriff Mike Wade told WTVR.

However, Wade said Winbush could not be accessing his Facebook page since he's in jail and has no access to computers.

If convicted, Winbush faces a mandatory minimum term of 10 years in prison, and a maximum of life in prison.
