|Matthew Abram Rader|
A man was arrested and charged after tattooing his name on the privates of an underage girl, according to police reports in Oregon.
The 30-year-old man also faces charges of third-degree rape.
According to the affidavit filed in the Benton County Oregon Court, the victim, who has not been publicly identified, told police that Matthew Abram Rader, gave her three tattoos for her 15th birthday including one on her privates.
The police interpreted this to mean that Rader, had engaged in a sexual relationship with the victim when she was 14 years old. In Oregon, sex with a person under 16 years old is considered rape in the third degree.
The victim told police that she had never revealed her real age to Rader. However, Oregon law states that a defendant not knowing a child's age is not a viable defense to the violation.
Police investigated Rader with the cooperation of the victim and uncovered dozens of pages of sexually explicit messages between her and Rader.
During an exchange with an official posing as the victim on Facebook, Rader sent nude photographs to the girl.
Corvallis Police arrested Rader. He is being held in the Benton County jail on $200,000 bail and faces charges of third-degree rape, second-degree online sexual corruption of a minor and one count of using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct.
