An Indiana man was arrested Tuesday for allegedly driving to Madison County to meet up with a juvenile he met on the Internet and possessing child pornography.
James M. Young, 31, of Fort Wayne, Ind., was arrested after Kentucky State Police Trooper Toby Coyle received a complaint of a suspicious vehicle parked outside of a Madison County residence.
Coyle responded to the call at 10:55 p.m. and found the vehicle leaving the area. Upon investigation, it was found that the driver possessed matter portraying a juvenile in a sexual performance, said Master Trooper Chris Lanham of the KSP Post 7 in Richmond.
Police said Young drove to Madison County to meet a 13-year-old girl with whom he had been corresponding online.
He was charged with second-degree burglary, first-degree sexual abuse, second-degree sodomy, six counts of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and six counts of use of a minor under 16 in a sexual performance.
“He unlawfully entered the victim’s dwelling,” Lanham said.
Even though the girl opened the window for Young, “... he entered that residence with the intention of committing a crime, which was having sex with a 13-year-old,” Lanham said.
Young remains in the Madison County Detention Center on a $25,000 cash bond.
