Man charged with sexual communication with a minor and child pornography

Twenty-three-year-old Austin Pelletier was arrested by Special Agents from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation in Payne County on charges of child pornography on Thursday, September 22. The charges come after Pelletier responded to a Craigslist ad made by an undercover Internet Crimes Against Children task force officer, who posed as a 14-year-old girl.

Pelletier talked in a sexually explicit manner with the undercover officer, which culminated in Pelletier sending a picture of his penis. The task force then accessed Pelletier’s computer and found child pornography on the device. Other charges Pellettier is facing include engaging in sexual communication with a minor by use of technology, and violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act.
