Jessica Jones, 29, faces a number of charges in connection with the allegation
Authorities in Ohio say a woman stands accused of sending explicit porn images and videos to a young teenager.

According to community newspaper The Highland County Press, Jessica E. Jones, 29, of Lucasville was arrested and charged late last month with sending porn videos to the teen.

She faces counts of disseminating matter harmful to juveniles, a fifth-degree felony, and child endangerment, a second-degree felony.

Authorities began investigating after receiving a report in early September about Jones’ alleged behavior.

Pike County Sheriff James Nelson said that officers made the arrest earlier this week after serving a warrant and seizing a number of electronic devices, according to Newsbreak.

“A search warrant was conducted at the residence of Jones, where electronic items were seized and sent out for analysis,” the sheriff said of the Ohio woman’s arrest for sending porn videos.

Upon receiving the data extracted from the evidence collected from Jones’s home, Cpl R Cottrill was able to effect an arrest.

Jones was in court Wednesday, Oct. 21 to face the charges against her. It was not immediately clear if she had entered a plea.

The sheriff’s office noted that the case has been continued until it can be reviewed by a grand jury later in late November.

Jones, the Ohio woman accused of sending porn videos to a child, is apparently free on bond. It wasn’t immediately clear if she had retained an attorney available to comment.

It wasn’t clear who the alleged victim was or who he and Jones knew each other.

The investigation into the allegation was led by Pike Couny Cpl. R. Cottrill, The News Watchman reported.

The Ohio woman’s arrest for allegedly sending porn videos to a child bears a resemblance to a number of similar recent cases.

Recently, Missouri teacher Emily Edson was sentenced to prison for barraging a trio of 13-year-old boys with naked selfies and explicit messages.

In one instance, Edson begged one of the students to have sex with her in a series of pleading text messages.

Edson was sentenced to four years in prison by a judge in a Vernon County, Missouri, circuit court after agreeing to a plea deal.
