Four Michigan men are facing felony charges after having sex with a teen boy they met at church on Grindr.

The four accused met the boy independently.

The teen was 15 at the time, but a few key details are absent from the story. Did he lie about his age? Does he look older than his (admittedly very few) years?

One of the accused, Cody Hunter Swatling, is only 18 himself. The other three are 24, 20 and 27.

Two of the men are being held on $500,000 bond.

They face charges ranging from accosting a child for immoral purposes, using a computer to commit the crime, possession of abusive child sexuality material and assault with intent to commit sexual penetration.

The alleged encounters were reported by a family member of the teen, who is now 16.
