Naked Pictures Lead To Indictment
A Putnam County man has found out that you cannot send naked pictures to young people -- even if they want you to. 41-year-old Timothy Alan Clouse of Edgewood Drive in Cookeville has been indicted by the county grand jury on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and of the "sale, loan, or exhibit of material to minors." He allegedly sent nude pictures by cell phone to a 14-year-old boy who then forwarded the pictures to other students at his school. The sheriff's department began investigating after the other students -- and their parents -- complained. The 14-year-old's cell phone was confiscated and the investigation led to the indictment of Clouse.
