Man indicted for alleged sex abuse

Posted: Thursday, January 30, 2003

FAIRBANKS - A 26-year-old man has been indicted on charges he had sex in August with a 13-year-old North Pole girl he met over the Internet.

A grand jury indicted Jason R. Richards on four counts of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor and two counts of third-degree sexual abuse of a minor, all stemming from the Aug. 17 encounter.

After meeting over the Internet, the two then talked for about two months before having sex at a North Pole residence Aug. 17, Alaska State Trooper Investigator Lantz Dahlke told the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. The accusations surfaced when troopers received a report from a crisis line in the Lower 48 that the girl called hours after the encounter, said trooper Michael Wery.
