IRONWOOD, MI-- The Michigan State Police Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force has arrested an Ironwood man for criminal sexual conduct following an investigation into his online activity.
The investigation began when a Tumblr user reported suspicious activity on an account to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Evidence was obtained that led investigators to execute a search warrant on 47-year-old Jason Irvine’s house.
On September 6 digital evidence revealing Irvine had engaged in criminal sexual conduct with a minor child was seized.
He was arraigned on a charge of 1st degree criminal sexual conduct on September 7. He remains lodged in the Gogebic County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
The Wakefield Post is handling the CSC investigation. Anyone with information pertaining to Irvine is asked to call 224-3611.
