LA VERKIN – A 19-year-old Springdale man was arrested by La Verkin police on charges of two counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, one count of harmful materials to a minor and one count of sodomy of a 14-year-old.
Detective Travis Romney said Keith Lane Peterson allegedly had a relationship with a 14-year-old girl last year, and is accused of participating in oral sex with the teen. In June of this year, the man allegedly began “sexting” the teen by sending a sexual photo of himself and receiving two photos of the now 15-year-old girl.
Peterson is being charged with two 2nd degree felonies and two 3rd degree felonies. He had not posted bail at the time of this story.
