A 21-year-old Mount Prospect man was arrested and charged last week for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl he met on the MySpace.com Web site.
Thomas B. Zuffante, 21, was charged Friday with felony aggravated criminal sexual abuse and manufacturing child pornography. Mount Prospect Police said Zuffante communicated with numerous girls younger than 17 years old through the MySpace.com Web site and that he had a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old Elgin girl. Police said Zuffante possessed sexually explicit photographs of himself and the 15-year-old.
The charges against Zuffante came after a three-month investigation.
Officer Dirk Ollech said Zuffante had been previously arrested July 5, 2005, and was charged then with aggravated criminal sexual abuse for having inappropriate contact with a 15-year-old Wheeling girl.
