A Fort Myers man is under investigation after he allegedly sent a pornographic picture to a 9-year-old boy's cell phone. The man claims it was a mistake.
According to the Ty'Ge Davis' family, the X-rated text came in about a week ago. The third grader showed his grandmother, who was totally shocked even at her advanced age.
The text message was a picture of a woman performing oral sex on a couch.
"That was too old for me," Ty'Ge said. "I wasn't ready for that."
He handed the phone to his grandmother, Dorothy Moore.
Moore sent a reply message informing the texter that the pic had been sent to a little kid, but by then a second explicit picture had come in.
That's when the unidentified texter claimed he was trying to sell the couch in the picture and it was the only pic he could find of the furniture.
Davis' family handed his phone to the Lee County Sheriff's Office, which is now investigating the situation.
"It's puzzling and belittling to me that you can sit there and say this is the only picture you can find to send to somebody advertising a couch," Moore said. "Now that was desperate for a sale if he was going to do that."
