Whitestown Sex Offender Walks 351 Miles To Have Sex With Wisconsin Girl

The distance between Whitestown, Ind., and Neenah, Wis., is just over 350 miles-not usually a distance one would want to travel mostly on foot. But the conversation soon turned X-rated as Jenkins allegedly asked the "teen" whether she had had sex, which "port" she had used and said he would check her private area when she arrived to make sure she was ok.

Jenkins denied the allegations but eventually pleaded no contest on four counts of child abuse and was sentenced to four years of probation. Jenkins required sexually explicit images from the woman and made strategies to take part in sexual activities with her, according to a press release from the U.S. Department of Justice. He demanded she join him in IN, but he was turned down, prosecutors said.

Jenkins allegedly sent "Kylee" selfies of himself and photos of landmarks, including churches and exit signs, throughout his trek, according to a federal criminal complaint obtained by The Indianapolis Star.

It's not entirely clear how numerous 300-plus miles Jenkins actually covered on foot.

The Ravens also have Brandon Carr , Justin Bethel , Maurice Canady , Anthony Averett , and Cyrus Jones at the position. Cornerback Jimmy Smith (knee) has missed the past five games, and nickelback Tavon Young (neck) is out for the season.

Officials arrested Jenkins upon his arrival in Winnebago County, more than 300 miles from his home. On Oct. 6, the affidavit notes, "Kaylee" agreed to have Jenkins come to Wisconsin to get her-and he messaged her he'd started walking.

In his messages to "Kylee", Jenkins wrote that he wanted to have 500 children with the teen, beginning with a pregnancy this year, the Oshkosh Northwestern reported.

Tommy Lee Jenkins now faces charges of using a computer to attempt to persuade, induce, or entice a minor to engage in unlawful sexual activity. A preliminary examination hearing is set for October 23.

"Our nation faces an epidemic of child sexual abuse, with the Internet making it too easy for predators to communicate with children across the country", U.S. Attorney Matthew D. Krueger said in a Friday statement.
