Deputies in Ontario County say that a Canandaigua man was charged with sending indecent communications to a minor beginning in August of this year.
According to authorities, Jeffrey M. Lewis, 37, of Canandaigua was charged with disseminating indecent material to minors in the first degree after an investigation revealed that he had ongoing communication beginning in August through social media and text messages with a minor he knew to be 11-years-old.
The communication allegedly involved nude photos and simulated sexual conduct. The defendant was also making plans to meet with the victim for a sexual encounter in the near future. However, Lewis was arrested before the meet up occurred.
He was arrested and remanded to the Ontario County Jail in lieu of $5,000 cash bail or $10,000 secured bond.
