A 35-year-old physician was arrested Wednesday for allegedly sending explicit material to someone he believed was a 16-year-old girl and investigators were seeking additional possible victims.
Jonathan Ellis of Long Beach was arrested about 9:00AM after contacting what turned out to be an undercover officer who had been posing online as a 16-year-old girl, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
“Ellis also sent a sexually explicit image to the officer,” police said. “Ellis studied medicine in Henderson, Nevada and is currently a resident physician in Long Beach.”
Details about where he practices medicine was not released.
Henderson is facing multiple counts of sending harmful material to a minor and one count of arranging a meeting with a minor to engage in lewd behavior, according to the LAPD.
Henderson was released from custody about 7:45PM after posting $85,000 bail, according to sheriff’s inmate records.
