A Springfield man accused of posting nude photos of a minor online has pleaded guilty to a count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.
Raymar Davon Thompson, 21, was charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, pandering sexually oriented matter involving a minor and illegal use of a minor in a nudity-oriented material or performance in May. He originally pleaded not guilty to the charges, but in a motion filed by his attorney he withdrew his plea and entered a guilty plea to the single fourth-degree felony charge.
Thompson’s attorney, Clark County Public Defender James Marshall, couldn’t be reached for comment.
Police accused him of posting a nude photo of a teenage girl to Facebook after an argument. According to a police affidavit, Thompson allegedly posted a picture of the girl’s private areas on the social media site because she wouldn’t give him money.
“The defendant started to warn the child victim and started sending pictures of what he was going to post on Facebook,” the report says. “The defendant then advised the child victim that he was going to expose her and told her to go look.
“The child victim stated that she located the pictures, which she identified as her,” the reports says.
The victim saved the photos on Facebook before Thompson deleted them, the report says. Police received this evidence along with the texts, police said.
The maximum prison sentence for the charge is 18 months, according to court documents. He also could face up to five years of parole after he gets out of jail.
Thompson is due back in court on Aug. 23 for sentencing by Clark County Common Pleas Court Judge Richard O’Neill.
