An Omaha man is now jailed on charges he sent sexually explicit e-mails and nude photographs of himself to underage girls — most of whom were in Iowa. Twenty-seven-year-old Jayson Tegeder is charged with enticing a child with an electronic communications device.
Omaha police officer Michael Pecha says all of the charges are felonies. Pecha says, “Tegeder had been contacting girls under 16-years-old by instant messaging on a social networking site.” Pecha says most of the children the suspect was contacting on-line were living nearby and all of them were under 16.
He says, “Most of the girls were from Iowa.” Pecha says Tegeder knew he was talking to young teenagers. He says, “During contact with these girls, he did send nude photographs of himself to them, knowing that they were underage.” A parent of one of the victims, a 13-year-old, knew her daughter’s password and discovered what was going on. She then contacted police and Tegeder was arrested. He is being held on a $25,000 bond.
