Buffalo man charged with using teen meeting site to produce child pornography

A Buffalo man is charged with using Kik, a teen meeting site, to entice two underage girls, one 12 and the other 15, into sending him naked photos of themselves.

Raymond L. Crum, 46, is charged with the production, receipt and possession of child pornography.

The criminal complaint against Crum claims he coerced the 12-year-old, who was from Kentucky, into sexual scenarios, including bondage and dominance.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron J. Mango said Crum also had contact via Kik with a second victim, who was 15. He said she also sent Crum naked photos of herself.

U.S. Magistrate Judge H. Kenneth Schroeder Jr. ordered Crum detained until a hearing next week.

His arrest is the result of an investigation by Homeland Security Investigations.
