?We received a complaint from a twelve year old along with her mother who complained that over a period of time the little girl has been going to Mr. Stein?s residence and he had been giving her money and taking nude photographs of her. As a result of that the police responded, we conducted a search at Mr. Stein?s residence. The search resulted in the discovery computer equipments, including some nude photographs of the twelve year old, which were taken on two different occasions. And according to the girl, on one day Mr. Stein had sexual intercourse with her.?
