Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint, Trooper Berggren, of Clarion-based State Police, was assigned to investigate a report of indecent exposure on July 3, 2018, after an initial report was taken on June 22, 2018, by Trooper Jarrett.

The complaint stated that Moser sent pictures of his genitals through Facebook Messenger to a known 14-year old victim.

According to the complaint, the 14-year-old victim stated Moser was aware of his/her age, Moser was 29 years old at the time of the incident, and the incident occurred while the victim was at a residence in Paint Township, Clarion County.

The complaint states that Trooper Berggren interviewed Moser, and Moser allegedly admitted to sending the photos. Moser also substantiated the victim’s claims by identifying himself in various pictures, including the explicit photographs. He provided Trooper Berggren with a written statement.

Moser was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Timothy P. Schill at 1:12 p.m. on Tuesday, April 16.
