Authorities: Man texted lewd photos to teen

Posted March 27, 2009

— Cumberland County authorities charged a Fayetteville man with texting lewd pictures of himself to a 14-year-old girl.

Christopher Allen Anspach, 25, of 743 Poole Drive, was charged with two counts of disseminating obscene material to a minor.

Investigators said Anspach met the girl at the Round-A-Bout skating rink on Feb. 14 and exchanged phone numbers. They began sending text messages to one another, and the girl told authorities the messages were sexually oriented and that Anspach consistently encouraged her to send nude pictures.

The girl's father discovered the photos on her cell phone on Feb. 18 and filed a complaint with the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office, authorities said.

    koddos to dad!!! We need more parents like this dad to do the same with their children.... Get all up in their buisness, and make sure that you know whats really going on. Because there are lots of Monsters out there that are watching your son or daughter.......... { this could of been so much more worse .....

    JaydensMom08:It states that the father found the photos on her phone.Seems as if he had not looked this could have been much worse down the road.

    readme, instead of illegally taking matters into your own hands, why not just teach your daughter what you want her to do? In this case, the girl did several dumb/wrong things...gave her # out, didn't disclose her contact with this guy & didn't disclose the pics (her dad found them). It sounds like time-out time to me...and no cell phone for a couple more years. :-)

    To whom it may concern, every 14-year-old girl has a father like me waiting to severely punish anyone over the age of zero who sends nude photos to her.

    The Bee Gees are #1 !! :-D

    Is everyone posting on here male? I remember being impressed when an older guy would hit one me, not that I'd take him up on it, in my day we'd tell them right quick we were "Jail Bait". I also find nothing wrong with a 25 year old of either sex going skating. The problem comes in with a guy - any guy - sending lewd photos by cell phone and encouraging the other party to do the same. That's what's sick. He's not bad looking, he must just be a sicko that can't get a girl his age the normal way.
