Kevin McCreary turned himself in to police after a warrant for his arrest was issued. The charges stemmed from an investigation that began in June 2017 after a township resident discovered that someone was posing as her on social media.
Police allege that McCreary used pornographic images (that he found on the internet and that WERE NOT the actual victim) and sent them to people on social media. While posing as the victim he also engaged these people in sexually based conversations and told them that the pictures were actual pictures of the victim (even though they were not). Believing that the impersonator was a female and she was looking to engage in sexual activity with them, several people, using internet searches, were able to locate real information about the victim.
The victim started receiving harassing communications from these people and one male even showed up at her residence expecting to engage in sexual activity.
McCreary was arrested and arraigned on November 3, 2017. He was released on $100,00.00 unsecured bail. A bail condition is that he have no direct or indirect contact with the victim.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for December 1, 2017 at 9:30 a.m. in front of Magisterial District Judge Regina Armitage.
