Smith,Jake [1]

A nineteen year old Knoxville man faces two class C felony charges related to sex with a fifteen year old girl. Lt. Aaron Fuller with the Knoxville Police department says that at some yet to be determined time in mid-February Jake Smith allegedly engaged in a sex act with the girl, while a friend videotaped it. Subsequent to the filming, the video was distributed to others with Smith’s knowledge, but not to the knowledge of the victim. The charges are sex abuse in the third degree, and exploitation of a minor. Additional charges are pending against Smith and the other involved individual.
