For the third time in a month, a 23-year-old Altamonte Springs man faces child sex charges, and officials said there may be more victims.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement on Monday arrested Jordan Wagner on charges of traveling to meet a minor for sexual activity, lewd and lascivious molestation and transmitting harmful material to a minor.
At a news conference on Tuesday, the FDLE displayed photos of Wagner, several of which showed him in a disguise to make him look younger. Agents said Wagner would tried to look as if he was 16 years old and targeted girls under the age of 14.
Officials said Wagner met a 13-year-old girl in Marion County on Monday with the intent of having sex with her.
Wagner was booked into the Seminole County Jail on $50,000 bond. Upon his release, he will be transported to the Marion County Jail and held there on $172,000 bond.
On July 19, the FDLE arrested Wagner on 10 counts of possession of child pornography, and on Aug. 9, Wagner was arrested on one count of solicitation of a minor via the Internet to engage in unlawful sexual conduct.
"Statistics show that these individuals get bored with photographs and seek out live victims," said Jeffery Duncan of the FDLE, adding that Wagner's preference was 13 years old and under.
Neighbors described Wagner as a quiet 23-year-old who lived with his family. Neighbor Mark Martin said he watched as FDLE agents questioned Wagner last month for child porn.
Martin says Wagner's mother blamed it on friends, "[she said] he had friends that came and used his open wi-fi and his friends were actually the ones downloading the child porn."
Investigators said there are four known victims and believe there could be more. Investigators say he chatted with more than a dozen screen names on sites like Facebook and Kik Messenger, everyone on the other under the age of 13.
"He did not worry about traveling outside of the Altamonte Springs area and being a 23 year old," said Duncan. "He is not concerned about meeting a 13 year old and engage in sexual activity."
Officials are asking anyone with information to contact FDLE Special Agent Supervisor Jeffrey Duncan at 407-466-0702 or the Altamonte Springs Police Department at 407-571-8200.
