New Evidence In Klaudt Case
August 7, 2007, 7:21 AM
Later this month, former state lawmaker Ted Klaudt will back in court.
New evidence in the rape case against him suggests he attempted to solicit minors online last fall.
Investigators have reviewed chat logs on Klaudt's laptop computer.
They accuse Klaudt of using the name "studman" in one conversation to ask a 14-year-old girl to send webcam pictures of herself. Investigators say Klaudt also used the name "thephotoman," pretending to be a 21-year-old modeling agent. With that, he allegedly asked a 15-year-old girl to send him photos so she could star in a pornographic movie.
The investigator who lays out this information in an affidavit says an 18-year-old woman he interviewed backs up this evidence. She says Klaudt offered to take photos of her using sex toys in order to build a modeling portfolio, and to do the same for her 16-year-old sister.
