Man accused of using computer for child-sex encounter
NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — A Massachusetts man has been accused in New Hampshire of using a computer to arrange a sexual encounter with a person whom he believed to be a child.
Police in Nashua recently arrested 42-year-old Kenneth Mathews, of North Chelmsford, on one count of certain uses of computer services prohibited, and for being a fugitive from justice.
Police said Mathews traveled to Nashua for the encounter and was arrested. Police also learned that Mathews had an active arrest warrant issued by the Rhode Island State Police on a charge of indecent solicitation of a child and electronically disseminating indecent material to a minor.
Mathews was being held Wednesday on $100,000 cash only bail pending a hearing. It wasn’t immediately known if he had a lawyer.
