On August 30, 2022, 19-year-old Jessie Harris of Geneva, made contact on Facebook with a covert Facebook account operated by an investigator with the Holmes County Sheriff’s Office. At the time, Harris believed the account belonged to a 15-year-old female.
During the course of the conversation, Harris made sexual requests and sent obscene pictures to the account, again believing that he was talking to a 15-year-old child.
Investigators obtained a confession from Harris, who has since been arrested. He is charged with transmitting material harmful to minors and obscene communication – using a computer to seduce solicit, or lure a child or person believed to be a child.
