North Vernon man accused of Snapchat solicitation

Indiana State Police have arrested a 45-year-old North Vernon man accused of soliciting a child on the Internet.

Christopher Blackburn is facing charges of child solicitation, attempted vicarious sexual gratification and attempted possession of child pornograpy.

State Police say that Blackburn reached out to the 15-year-old girl on Snapchat in February, sending her a sexually suggestive music video, then asking her to send him inappropriate pictures.

A Jennings County warrant was issued for his arrest and he was arrested early last week without incident, according to troopers.
