Hammond Teacher Sex Investigation
A Hammond Morton High School math teacher is under arrest today on a federal complaint that he encouraged students to send him sexually explicit sexual cell phone images. Jon Erik Lilly could face federal charges of possessing visual depictions of a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct.
The investigation began when the mother of a 17-year-old girl became suspicious of the conduct between her daughter and Lilly.
When the 27-year-old Cedar Lake man was arrested federal investigators found hundreds of sexually explicit images on his computer, some involving minors.
Anyone with information related to the case could call Hammond Police Sergeant Mark Biller at 219-852-2966.
