McLean man charged in child porn case
Fairfax County police said their search for a 15-year-old runaway girl has led to the arrest of a McLean man on child pornography charges.
The suspect, Joshua Gessler, 41, of the 1300 block of Nina Court, allegedly had contact with the Centreville girl "through a series of online interactions," police said in a statement.
They alleged that Gessler met with the girl in person and took sexually graphic photos of her, which he then transmitted electronically.
Gessler, arrested Aug. 9, was charged with five counts of possessing child pornography and one count of producing it, police said Tuesday. The investigation began in May.
Police asked anyone with further information about the case to contact Fairfax police at 866-411-8477 or 703-691-2131, by e-mail at www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org, or by texting TIP187,” including "CRIMES/274637" with the message.
