Man from Rogers charged with enticement of a child and possession of child pornography

            ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Jason Chandler Mapp, 41, of Rogers, New Mexico, appeared in federal court today for a detention hearing on charges of enticement of a minor and possession of child pornography. Mapp will remain in custody pending trial.

            According to a criminal complaint, beginning in 2019, Mapp, a middle school bus driver for Dora Consolidated Schools in Roosevelt County, New Mexico, allegedly began using Instagram and Snapchat to message two minor victims. Mapp allegedly used multiple accounts to pressure the victims into sending him nude photographs of themselves and each other.

            On July 23, 2020, officers from the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant on Mapp’s home. In addition to non-pornographic photos of the victims found on Mapp’s cell phone, investigators found images and videos of child pornography on Mapp’s desktop computer.

            A complaint is only an allegation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty. If convicted, Mapp faces a minimum of 10 years and up to life in prison

            The Roswell Resident Agency of the FBI Albuquerque Field Office and the Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office investigated this case. Assistant United States Attorney Marisa A. Ong is prosecuting the case.
