Details Emerge in Tennessee Man's Child Porn Arrest in Albemarle

Posted: Updated:

New details are emerging about a Tennessee man now facing a slew of child porn charges in Albemarle County.

A search warrant details how police believe Johnathan Messer met his 16-year-old victim. Police say the two met online and eventually checked into a local hotel room where they spent the night of October 18.

Now, 24-year-old Messer is facing four felony child porn charges. He is currently behind bars at the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail.

The search warrant says the victim informed Messer of her age before meeting him. The two had conversations about having sex over a period of six days and the victim sent nude pictures of herself to Messer through email.

An officer says Messer admitted to meeting the teen and that the emails were very sexually explicit.

Police seized Messer's phone as part of the case. He will be back in Albemarle County Domestic Relations Court November 25.
