A 32-year-old Denham Springs man who sent a nude picture of himself to a Louisiana State Police investigator posing online as a 15-year-old girl has been booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a count of indecent behavior with a juvenile.

Jason Cannon, 140 Fletcher St., began exchanging messages online and via text message on July 30 with the investigator. Cannon had responded to an ad titled “What’s up?” that Louisiana State Police had placed on the Miscellaneous Romance section of the Baton Rouge Craigslist website as part of an undercover chat investigation, according to police documents.

At one point, the investigator told Cannon he didn’t have to speak with her if he didn’t want, to which he replied, “I will but I don’t want your parents finding out,” according to police documents.
