Sullivan Co. teen gets six-month jail sentence in sexting case


A Sullivan County judge granted probation Thursday to a man who admitted having a sexual encounter and sexting a 13-year-old Bluff City girl on his mobile phone.

Adam Tatham was 18 when he was arrested last year for statutory rape and exploiting a minor by electronic means.

He pleaded guilty as charged in August, admitting sending sexually-oriented texts and videos to the girl, and meeting with her for sex.
