Blackwood, NJ, Man Who Tried Meeting a 13-year-old for Sex Avoids Jail Time
A Camden County man who admitted to trying to meet a 13-year-old girl for sex will not be spending any time behind bars but he is not completely off of the hook for his actions.
36-year-old Jason McCann of Blackwood pleaded guilty earlier this year to a third-degree attempt to commit endangering the welfare of a child–impairing or debauching the morals of a child charge in exchange for three years behind bars, however, a judge instead sentenced him to parole supervision for life.
"The investigation into McCann began in July 2020 after he used an instant messaging app to arrange a rendezvous [at a park in Bordentown Township] and send pictures of his genitals and videos of himself masturbating to someone he thought was a 13-year-old girl. In reality, the person he was communicating with was a Special Agent with United States Homeland Security Investigations."
In addition to parole, McCann must register as a sex offender in New Jersey.
