Former state rep Kyle Tasker indicted on sex and drug charges
A grand jury has indicted former New Hampshire state representative Kyle Tasker on drug charges, we well as charges he used a computer and social media to lure what he thought was a teen girl for sex.
Court documents from July say Tasker, of 87 Smoke Street, Nottingham, between January 16, 2016 and March 2, 2016, "knowingly used a computer online or Internet service to solicit a person he believed to be a child to commit an offense under RSA 632-A relative to sexual assault and related offenses."
In the document signed by Rockingham County Attorney Patricia Conway, Tasker sent a Facebook message to an undercover police officer who was posing online as a 14-year-old girl.
Tasker, 30, was arrested in March after an investigation lasting several weeks. News reports state a subsequent search of Tasker's home revealed he had a variety of drugs.
July's indictment stated Tasker possessed a variety of illegal and controlled substances, including Buprenorphine, Ecstasy, hash oil, marijuana, psychedelic mushrooms and cocaine.
The computer charge is a class B felony, meaning Tasker may face prison time as well as his name being on the sex offender registry.
Tasker resigned as representative in March.
