RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) – A Northern Virginia Task Force says 18 people from seven states have been arrested and charged with multiple child sex crimes.
Northern Virginia-Washington, DC Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) says three of those people were from the Central Virginia area:
- Jeremy L. Nugent, 43, of Petersburg: two counts of online solicitation of a minor under the age of 15
- Michael T. Poole, 54, of Chesterfield: nine counts of online solicitation of a minor under 15
- Charles T. George, 52, of Glen Allen: two counts of online solicitation of a minor under the age of 15
ICAC says the charges stemmed from an investigation this year by a Virginia State Police special agent.
“The 18 convicted men from seven states received 128 years of imprisonment by the court,” ICAC said in a press conference on Friday.
The charges were prosecuted by the Harrisonburg/Rockingham County Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office. Other cases and arrests are pending.
