A 20-year-old man from Grass Valley, Northern California, was arrested at a local fair on Sunday for allegedly distributing explicit material to children with the intent to lure them, according to authorities. The incident occurred on the final day of the Nevada County Fair in Grass Valley.
Deputies from the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office, who were patrolling the fairgrounds, responded to a report from a fair vendor about the young man’s alleged harassment of several teenage girls. Upon investigation, it was revealed that the suspect had reportedly solicited minors and sent unsolicited, inappropriate content to children.
During questioning, the individual purportedly admitted to these actions. This wasn’t the suspect’s first encounter with the law. He had been previously arrested on similar charges by the same Sheriff’s Office in April. Surprisingly, he was out on release at the time of this recent incident.
