Mike Charged for Allegedly Sending Graphic Images to Minor
Robert Edward Mike Jr., 21, of Gainesville, Fla., was arrested Monday for allegedly sending pornographic images of himself to a 16-year-old girl in Moundsville.
Mike is lodged at Northern Regional Jail in lieu of $15,000 bond.
According to the criminal complaint filed against Mike, the victim told Moundsville police that Mike sent several sexually graphic photos and videos to her phone Dec. 15.
The girl reportedly said Mike also asked her to send him an explicit video of herself.
The report states the girl had a relationship with Mike for almost two years prior to the incident and told police Mike is the father of her child, although his name was not on the child’s birth certificate.
Officers reportedly were able to find a graphic photo showing Mike’s face.
Officers also identified the sender’s phone number as belonging to a Verizon customer in Florida.
A preliminary hearing for Mike is set for 2:30 p.m. Feb. 7.
