A man who brought two Cranberry Township teens to his home in Ohio last fall without their parents’ knowledge now faces charges of having pornographic images of one of the underage girls on his Facebook account.
Jordan Skylar Wilson, 18, of Marietta, Ohio, is charged with child pornography, unlawful contact with a minor and criminal use of a communication facility in the incident.
He waived a preliminary hearing last Friday before District Justice David Kovach in Cranberry.
According to the criminal complaint filed by Cranberry Police, officers used a search warrant to access Wilson’s Facebook account and cell phone records in September.
The results showed Wilson and the underage Cranberry teen had been exchanging messages and photographs through Facebook, including six pornographic images of the girl, between Jan. 31 and Aug. 16 of 2012.
Police said the girl wore no clothing and was posing provocatively in a sexual manner in the photos, the complaint said.
Police also discovered three pornographic images of an underage Marietta girl on Wilson’s Facebook account. Marietta police plan to pursue the case after being given the information by Cranberry officers, the complaint said.
Wilson originally was arrested Sept. 4 after police found the Cranberry teen he had been exchanging messages with and another girl at his house in Marietta. Both girls had been reported missing by their parents.
The girls, ages 14 and 16, were discovered later that same evening after a relative of the 14-year-old found Wilson’s contact information through Facebook and reported it to Cranberry Police.
Officers then contacted the Marietta Police Department. Police there located the girls, along with their personal belongings, at Wilson’s home on Brentwood Street. Neither girl was harmed.
Wilson pleaded guilty to two counts of corruption of a minor in the incident before Butler County Common Pleas Judge William Shaffer on Jan. 16. Felony charges of interference with the custody of children and concealing the whereabouts of a child were dismissed
He is scheduled to be sentenced at 9 a.m. Thursday, March 28 before Shaffer.
Wilson will be formally arraigned on the new charges at 1 p.m. April 1 at the Butler County courthouse.
