CARSON CITY, NV - A California man is charged with several sex crimes after deputies say he encouraged a Carson City girl to take pornographic pictures with a snake.

23-year-old Christopher Ryan Teague faces charges of statutory sexual seduction, luring a child and use of minor as a subject of a sexual performance.

Investigators say Teague met the 15-year-old online. He eventually got her cell phone number and they started texting.

Court papers indicate Teague came to Nevada from California and lured the girl from her home. Papers say they eventually had sex and took pictures of the act. That's in addition to the pictures with the snake.

Deputy District Attorney Mark Krueger says if convicted, Teague could serve a life sentence with the possibility of parole after five years.
