Cave Junction man accused of luring minor with pot
A 35-year-old Josephine County man faces a string of felony charges surrounding a sting investigation in which he allegedly engaged in sexually explicit texts with a person he believed to be an underage girl, and on accusations he delivered illicit marijuana to the girl’s purportedly 16-year-old friend.
Christopher Michael Meyer of Cave Junction faces first-degree online sexual corruption of a child, luring a minor and unlawfully delivering marijuana charges on accusations he spent more than a month texting a person he believed to be a 14-year-old girl, and that he offered the teen’s 16-year-old friend an ounce of marijuana, according to documents filed Friday in Josephine County Circuit Court.
From Dec. 1 to Jan. 6, Meyer allegedly engaged in sexually explicit text conversations with the purported 14-year-old, according to a document filed by the Josephine County Sheriff’s Office in the case.
Texts from Meyer’s phone allegedly included “I’m going to wreck you in the bed” and telling the purported teen to make sure she doesn’t get pregnant.
Meyer was arrested Jan. 6 ahead of a meetup in Cave Junction where police say he made a “substantial step” to meet with the minor for sex by bringing with him 32.7 grams of marijuana — roughly 1.15 ounces.
Meyer also faces a misdemeanor evidence tampering charge accusing him of throwing his phone into the creek.
As of Friday afternoon, Josephine County Jail records showed Meyer was still an inmate held on $50,000 bail.
