Police say California man used SnapChat to sexually entice a 14-year-old girl in Keene


KEENE — A California man turned himself in on a warrant for his arrest after allegedly having sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl back on May 11.

Police say 27-year-old Jonathan Christy met the young girl on SnapChat and arranged to meet with her. Once in Keene, Christy allegedly picked the girl up from Keene Middle School and brought her to his hotel room at the Keene Inn where sexual contact was reported.

The girl's mother became aware of the exchange and contacted the police.

Christy was charged with using the internet to lure and entice a 14-year-old to perform sexual acts, a felony charge. He is currently being held at the Cheshire County Jail in lieu of bail and is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday at 1 p.m.

No other charges have been filed against Christy at this time.

Police ask anyone with information to contact Detective Steven LaMears of the Keene Police Department at 603-357-9820.
