CHICAGO (STMW) – A Lake Station, Ind. man has been charged with seven felony counts involving the molestation of an 11-year-old girl.

Gerald Jerome Cox, 35, was charged with two counts of child molesting, criminal deviate conduct, child exploitation, confinement, vicarious sexual gratification and possession of child pornography, after the girl confided in a school resource officer that Cox had molested her.

The girl told police Cox had fondled her, had sex with her and took nude photographs of her, which the FBI recovered from a memory card from Cox’s camera.
