Former N.H. State Rep. Kyle Tasker, 30, faces one charge of certain uses of a computer prohibited, which is a class B felony, and three charges of possession of a controlled drug, all class A felonies.

Tasker's charges stem back to when the mother of a 14-year-old girl filed a complaint with police in January, claiming Tasker had been soliciting her daughter for sex through Facebook. Tasker allegedly had met the girl and later contacted her via Facebook, and in a message is accusing of asking her age and then said “girls like you could get me into trouble.” Tasker is also accused of asking the girl to perform sexual acts.

Wednesday's hearing in Candia District Court was to determine whether there's enough evidence against Tasker to send the case to a grand jury for possible indictment.

Tasker and his attorney haven't commented on the charges.
