Raney began soliciting inappropriate photos and videos through Snapchat before the relationship progressed to in-person sexual encounters, police said.
The victim’s parents discovered the relationship started when the victim was a minor and reported the incident to police.
Raney was charged with possession of child porn, indecent liberties by a custodian and use of communications systems to facilitate certain offenses involving children.
