Police: Calif. Man Lured NH Teen on Snapchat

A California man has been arrested after he allegedly sent inappropriate content via Snapchat to a young girl in Keene, New Hampshire, and had sex with her in a hotel room.

Jonathan Christy, 27, of Placentia, was arrested Wednesday after an investigation. Police say he returned to New Hampshire to answer to his arrest warrant.

Police say Christy sent the content to the 14-year-old victim over a three-day period. The girl, a Keene Middle School student, told police she met him online.

Christy allegedly arranged to drive from California to meet the victim in Keene, where police say he engaged in sexual acts with her at the Keene Inn.

Keene Police confirm Christy's bail has been set at $10,000. He is due to be arraigned Thursday at Keene District Court. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.

Anyone with information is asked to call (603) 357-9820 and ask for Steven LaMears.
