Winchester PD undercover investigation leads to Fargo man’s guilty plea after luring a minor

Posted By Winchester Police on April 12th, 2016

From WDAY 6 News, Fargo North Dakota.

FARGO—A Fargo man pleaded guilty Monday, April 4, in Cass County District Court to a charge of luring a minor by computer.

James L. Thompson, who was 34 when he was charged last fall, admitted to using a messaging app to send a photo of his genitals to a police investigator posing as an 11-year-old girl.

According to court documents, the case began when the father of a girl in Winchester, Mass., contacted police about suspicious messages his daughter was getting.

A police investigator began communicating with Thompson using the girl’s phone, and Thompson unknowingly sent a photo of his genitals to the investigator in August 2014.

In return for the guilty plea other charges pending against Thompson are being dismissed.

A presentence investigation has been ordered for Thompson, who has been a registered offender against children since 2007.
