Sheriff's deputies arrested Spencer P. Miktarian of Woodstock Aug. 6 and charged him with possession of child pornography and unlawful use of a communication system in a case involving a 16-year-old girl from Edinburg.
Shenandoah County sheriff's Lt. Tom Shelton said another defendant, Thomas L. Cooper, 22, of Woodstock also has been charged with the same offenses and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
Shelton said the investigation began when the girl told authorities that she was having an "inappropriate" relationship with Cooper. Shelton said the investigation revealed that Cooper and Mikitarian had received pornographic photos of the girl.
Shelton said pornographic photos of the victim were found on Mikitarian's cell phone during the investigation.
Mikitarian is scheduled to appear in Shenandoah County Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court on Aug. 23.
