CORTLAND – A Cortland man was in DeKalb County Jail on Wednesday, accused of having sexual contact with a child and keeping a photograph of the victim.

Shane Trigger, 26, of the first block of East Oxford Close, is charged with aggravated criminal sexual abuse, possession of child pornography and indecent solicitation of a child.

Prosecutors allege Trigger met the victim, a girl between the ages of 13 and 17, on the Internet, and then met her in person in July 2012, when the contact occurred, according to court documents. He also had a pornographic picture of her, court records show.

Trigger's bond was set at $75,000 during an initial court appearance Wednesday morning.
