NIXA, Mo. - A man from Nevada was arrested late last month on a warrant from Christian County for three counts of sexual misconduct involving a child, authorities said Thursday.
Jayant Sharma, 30, was arrested by Washoe County, Nev., sheriff's deputies on July 23 in Reno, Nev. after a two-year investigation by the Nixa Police Department Cyber Crimes Unit into online chats Sharma conducted.
According to a press release from the city of Nixa, Sharma is accused of exposing himself and sending several images of pornography to detectives, believing them to be young girls from Missouri.
Sharma is currently free on bail, but faces a court date in Christian County later this month.
