Police accuse Alverton man of texting girl
A 22-year-old Westmoreland County man has been arrested for allegedly sexting a 14-year-old girl over a three-month period, police said.
Jesse Ray Geyer of Route 981, Alverton, was arraigned Wednesday on charges of corruption of minors, dissemination of sexual materials with a minor, possession of child pornography, unlawful contact with a minor and distribution of obscene materials.
In court documents, Scottdale Police Officer Thomas Mortimer said that between January and March of this year, Geyer sent numerous sexual photographs of himself to the girl.
Mortimer said Geyer also sent her messages about sexual acts.
The investigation began in March when one of the girl's parents discovered the text messages and contacted authorities, according to court documents.
Geyer is awaiting trial on multiple criminal charges of having sex with an 11-year-old boy filed last spring by state police in Greensburg.
Geyer's preliminary hearing on the most recent charges is scheduled for Sept. 4. He is remains in the county jail on $60,000 bond.
