State officials say a Jackson Center man, whom police were investigating for having sex with a teenage girl, has now been charged with the possession of child pornography.

The state Attorney General’s office says 21 year-old Travis Cook was found to be in possession of twenty-eight images deemed to be child pornography.  Cook has also been charged with statutory sexual assault, indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor and the criminal use of a computer.

Most of the additional charges involve Cook’s admitted relationship with a now-16 year-old girl who gave birth in April to Cook’s child.  The girl reportedly told police she met Cook when she was thirteen.

Cook was arraigned in Mercer, and was placed in the Mercer County Jail on $100,000 bond.
