SPOKANE, Wash. -

Working with the Coeur d'Alene Police Department, a detective with the Spokane County Sheriff's Office arrested a 42-year-old registered sex offender for Communicating with a Minor for Immoral Purposes, and detectives believe there are more victims out there. 

Detectives say 42-year-old Shaun D. Jesse used social media to send sexually graphic images and messages to a 16-year-old girl. Detectives found 18 unsolicited messages Jesse sent to the victim, four of which included pictures with his genitals exposed. Detectives say Jesse offered or requested to have sexual contact with the girl, as well as offer her drugs. 

After finding that Jesse contacted two other girls in Coeur d'Alene the same way, detectives with the Coeur d'Alene Police Department were contacted. 

Two months after the investigation began, Jesse was arrested last week for Communication with a Minor for Immoral Purposes. Jesse is already a registered sex offender after a 2003 incident where he was convicted of Sexual Abuse of a Minor Under 16-years-old in Idaho. Jesse is also being held as a fugitive from justice charge for an outstanding Idaho warrant with a $200,000 bond. The warrant was sought by Coeur d'Alene Police detectives working with the Spokane County Sheriff's Office and was issued for two counts of Enticing a Child Through the Use of the Internet and for Disseminating Harmful Material. 

Detectives also believe there may be more victims out there that have not yet been identified, so they released a photo of a very distinctive tattoo that is on Jesse's abdomen which additional victims might recognize. 

If you believe you have been a victim of Jesse, or can provide any information regarding these incidents, you are urged to contact Detective Armstrong at 509-477-6610.
