"Sexting" Case Under Investigation
Putnam County sheriff's detective Jimmy Patterson is looking into a case in which a local teenager was sent pornographic images by a man in North Carolina. The teenager's grandparents reported that the inappropriate text messages came from a man who is the ex-boyfriend of the 17-year-old's mother. The Monterey residents who contacted the sheriff's office also gave detectives permission to view the images on their grandson's cell phone and to take the phone as evidence. Patterson will be following up on the investigation.
