BANGOR – A Pennsylvania man pleaded guilty Wednesday to attempting to transfer obscene material to a minor.
Aaron Dyer, 34, of New Cumberland, used the social media platform Snapchat to send images of his genitalia to a 10-year-old girl in Maine.
According to court documents, Dyer requested, in the accompanying message, that the girl send back nude photos of herself.
Dyer’s images were intercepted by the girl’s mother before the child was able to see them.
During his appearance at U.S. District Court, Dyer admitted to knowing the recipient of his Snapchat message was a 10-year-old girl.
Dyer now faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
