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.
