(BEDFORD) - An Oolitic man is accused of giving drugs and money to three different teenage girls in exchange for sex and nude photos.
54-year-old Gregory Cramer of Oolitic was arrested Thursday on charges of sexual misconduct with a minor, child exploitation and possession of child pornography. He pleaded not guilty to the offenses Monday.
According to court records, a 14-year-old girl performed oral sex on Cramer, who she only knew by the nickname "Tater". He then performed the act on her and took nude pictures of the girl in exchange of cash and drugs.
That girl then provided police with the names of two other teens who had similar experiences with Cramer.
The second girl told police Cramer had offered her money to clean her apartment. Cramer asked the 15-year-old to perform oral sex on him and allow him to photograph her nude. The girl fulfilled his request.
The third teen, who was 14-years-old told, police she went to Cramer's apartment in Oolitic with Amber Prince. Once there she showed Cramer a portion of her exposed chest. She then says Cramer touched her. He also asked to teen to perform oral sex on him, but she refused. Cramer did give the girl Lortab and Adderal in exchange for touching him and posing nude.
20-year-old Prince told police she has known Cramer for years and that when she was 18 when she allowed Cramer to take nude photos of her in exchange for cash.
Prince was arrested on March 10th at Cramer's apartment on a warrant for petition to revoke probation. Cramer was charged with maintaining a common nuisance, possession of meth and reckless possession of drug paraphernalia. He is now facing three charges of sexual misconduct with a minor, child exploitation and two charges of possession of child pornography.
While in jail, Prince was served warrants on charges of possession of meth, two counts of possession of a legend drug, maintaining a common nuisance, possession of marijuana, possession of paraphernalia and carrying a handgun without a permit.
During a search of Cramer's apartment officers found six rolls of film that were developed and showed nude photos of the teenage girls.
