52yr. old GA Man Has Been Implicated in “Sexting” Scandal with PA 14yr. old

A 52-year-old Georgia man has been implicated in a “sexting” scandal for allegedly soliciting a 14-year-old Tunkhannock Area Middle School student after he saw a semi-nude picture of her on the Internet. Scott Swanson of Hiawassee, Ga., was arrested Friday and charged with criminal solicitation and corruption of minors, Wyoming County District Attorney George Skumanick Jr. said Wednesday.

According to Skumanick, Swanson located the picture in November, and then began asking the teen for more sexually suggestive pictures.

Both the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Towns County sheriff’s office executed a search warrant Friday at Swanson’s place of business, Quest Global Angling Adventures in Hiawassee, where they found sexually suggestive photographs of the student as well as other child pornography on his computer.

Swanson was arrested and charged with possession of child pornography and is being held at the Towns County Jail, pending a bond hearing April 29, GBI public affairs officer John Bankhead said, adding Pennsylvania authorities provided a referral about the case in March.

Called “sexting,” the growing trend of sending and trading provocative photos via cell phone has cropped up all over the country. It surfaced at Tunkhannock Area in October when Skumanick threatened 20 teens with child pornography charges after school district officials discovered nude and semi-nude photographs on cell phones confiscated from students. Skumanick told the students they could avoid prosecution if they signed up for a five-week educational program.
