On Wednesday at the United States District Court in Worcester, Massachusetts, Andrew James Gallagher, 28, of Worcester was arrested and charged with one count of transfer of obscene material to a minor.
In April 2022, Gallagher contacted a 14-year-old using a social media platform. It is alleged that Gallagher asked, “are you underage at all?” to which the minor victim replied identifying himself as 14 years old.
Gallagher then allegedly sent two obscene images of himself to the minor victim, expressing interest in meeting the minor victim in person and asked the minor victim to send an explicit video of himself to Gallagher.
Gallagher made an initial appearance in federal court in Worcester and was detained pending a detention hearing scheduled for Dec. 9, 2022.
