CLAYTON, MO (KPLR) - A man is in jail after sending inappropriate pictures of himself to a 12-year-old.

Cameron Atkinson, 18-years-old, is charged with one count of sexual misconduct or attempting to involve a child.

“He met this young girl on the internet exchanged some photographs with her some rather suggestive nude photographs with her and was making arrangements to meet, “ said St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch.

According to court documents the victim is a 12-year-old girl who lives in Wisconsin.

Documents state the pictures were found on her school computer and Atkinson was planning to travel to Wisconsin to meet up.

Atkinson worked at a school for kids with disabilities.

McCulloch said there is no evidence the school was involved or that anything happened with students, but he thinks there could be more victims out there.

“These guys tend to have multiple victims and if there is anyone out there that has had contact with Cameron Atkinson we urge them to contact the county police,” said McClloch.

Court documents did not state the school where Atkinson worked.
