Man arrested on sexual exploitation charges

Ponca City Now - May 27, 2016 8:51 am

The culmination of a three month investigation has led to the arrest of Jason Andrew Shelton, 36.

He is currently being held for charges of lewd and indecent proposals to a child under the age of 16 and three counts of soliciting sexual conduct or communication with a minor by use of technology.

Investigators received information from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s Cyber Tip line in February about Shelton having explicit sexual on line conversation with a 13-year-old female through an app on his phone. Police seized Shelton’s cell phone on February 4, the day the tip was received.

Search warrants were obtained for on line conversations between Shelton and what appeared to be others under the age of 18.

He was transported to the Kay County Detention Center this morning.
