CONCORD, Mass. — Bail has been set at $10,000 for an Air Force member accused of traveling from Georgia to meet with a 14-year-old Massachusetts girl.
Airman Christopher Stevens, 19, was arraigned Monday on a child enticement charge in Concord District Court. Prosecutors said Stevens picked up the girl outside her home Thursday night and was with the alleged victim when he was arrested the following morning at a Concord hotel.
The girl’s parents contacted police after she went missing.
Prosecutors said Stevens — who’s stationed at Robins Air Force Base — first met the girl on Facebook and that the two exchanged sexual messages through the Internet and by text message.
Stevens’ attorney said his client believed the girl was 17 when he first met her online.
