33-year-old Christopher Dean Martin of Roseville, California, has been arrested on charges of ‘having sex’ (child rape) with a 16-year-old girl. Martin allegedly posed as an 18-year-old on the mobile image sharing app Snapchat in order to convince a 16-year-old to come to his house for sex. Is it me or does this guy look nothing like an 18-year-old? As a matter of fact he looks older than 33.
Speaking of age, because I know some of you will try to argue this point, the age of consent in California is 18 and they’re pretty serious about it. According to Wikipedia, no one may have sexual contact with anyone under 18.
Police believe he may have other victims…
Investigators believe Martin may have tried to lure other young girls around the Sacramento area. Anyone who suspects their child may have been a victim is asked to contact detectives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As usual the same cautions apply, learn to use these apps, know who your kids’ online friends are, and hold on to their devices at night. If not, you may find your child in the home of a 33-year-old pervert.
