Alleged flasher in more trouble

Five additional charges lodged against Science Hill man

(Continued)

Somerset —

The initial investigation led to SPD detectives seeking and obtaining a search warrant for Irvin’s personal computer at home. With help from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, detectives allegedly found several inappropriate images of children in his computer.
The case was handed back to SPD, which led to July’s indictment. 
This month’s indictments also stem from the same alleged incident on Feb. 13 and from the Feb. 21 search of Irvin’s home. 
According to the September indictment, Irvin “committed the offense of attempted unlawful transaction with a minor ... when he knowingly attempted to induce, assist, or cause (a minor under age 16) to engage in illegal sexual activity.”
The September indictment also states that Irvin “committed the offense of attempt to use a minor in a sexual performance by attempting to induce a sexual performance by (a minor under age 12).”
Those counts stem from the alleged Feb. 13 incident at WalMart.
The September indictment also states that Irvin “committed the offense of promoting a sexual performance by a minor by knowingly promoting a sexual performance by a minor under the age of 16.” Irvin is charged with three counts of promoting a sexual performance by a minor. 
First-degree attempted unlawful transaction with a minor, attempting to use a minor in a sexual performance, and promoting a sexual performance by a minor are all Class B felonies. 
An indictment is an accusation only and defendants are assumed innocent unless and until proven otherwise in court.
