18-year-old allegedly asked 15-year-old for nude pictures

A South Williamsport Area High School senior was charged late Friday afternoon for allegedly soliciting a 15-year-old girl to send him naked pictures of herself to his cellphone, according to Old Lycoming Township police said.

After receiving eight such pictures from the minor in mid-March, Trevor Matthew Lowmiller, 18, of Nisbet, allegedly shared the pictures with two other female minors, police said.

Lowmiller turned himself in at the office of District Judge James H. Sortman to face four counts of sexual abuse of children for possessing and disseminating child pornography. Following his arraignment, he was released on $20,000 bail.
