According to an affidavit filed in support of the federal criminal complaint, law enforcement officers in Cobb County, Ga., were contacted by the victim’s mother. She told officers that her 16-year-old daughter, identified as ”AS,” was involved in prostitution and had been communicating over the Internet and via cell phone texting with a person who scheduled “dates” for “AS” to have sex with adult males. This person requested “AS” to send nude images of herself, which she did, for the purpose of sending these images to the potential “dates.”

Georgia law enforcement officers identified Bowman and on Friday, March 7, 2014, local law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Bowman’s residence, where he was arrested.

Bowman told officers that he portrayed himself as a female on the Internet and had met “AS” online. They later exchanged e-mail addresses and cell phone numbers so they could continue to communicate. While speaking to each other, the conversation turned sexual and at Bowman’s request, “AS” sent him several pornographic images of herself. Bowman also requested webcam sessions of “AS” where she would masturbate for him. Bowman never actually spoke with “AS” by phone or on webcam, he told officers, because then she would know he was not female. He told her his webcam was broken. Bowman stated he also sent “AS” nude images of his ex-wife that he portrayed as himself.

Bowman told officers that he decided to set up “dates” for “AS” and would live vicariously through her. Bowman admitted to sending both non-nude as well as nude images of “AS” to these individuals. They sent Bowman nude images of themselves, which Bowman sent to “AS.” Bowman set up four “dates” for “AS,” one approximately every two weeks. He admitted to watching one of those “dates” via “AS’s” webcam. He said “AS” snuck the male subject into her bedroom while her mother and brother were asleep.

Dickinson cautioned that the charge contained in this complaint is simply an accusation, and not evidence of guilt. Evidence supporting the charge must be presented to a federal trial jury, whose duty is to determine guilt or innocence.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney James Kelleher. It was investigated by the Southwest Missouri Cyber Crimes Task Force, the Cobb County, Ga., Police Department and the FBI.
