Ogema man acused of using cell phone to solicit 13 year old girl

An Ogema man arrested in Becker County has been extradited back to Omaha for allegedly using a cell phone to solicit a 13 year old girl.

22 year old Christopher James Dodd has been charged in Becker County District Court with being a fugitive from justice.

According to court records: Dodd was arrested on an unrelated manor earlier this month and it was discovered there was warrant for him in Nebraska. Dodd was charged in January with enticing a child with an electronic communications device and one count of visual depiction of sexually explicit conduct with a minor.

In November of 2009 Dodd allegedly began sending nude photos and suggestive text messages to a 13 year old girl in Omaha.

Dodd fought extradition but both of the states governors signed the proper paper work to send him back.
