Chattanooga wrestler arrested for statutory rape

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (Times Free Press) -- A 28-year-old man, who uses the name "JC Kent" as a wrestler at Empire Pro Wrestling, was charged with aggravated statutory rape, sexual exploitation of a minor through electronic means and providing obscene materials to a minor in Hamilton County.

On March 13, a sheriff's office detective met with a young woman who accused Joshua Francis Carter of digitally penetrating her and encouraging her to send nude photos of herself from her home.

Carter asked her to send photos through an application on her cell phone and told her that the application was "made for sexting," according to the sheriff's report.

Carter received pictures of the minor and responded to one of the images by saying, "I'm touching myself to that last one." After receiving several images he sent her a digital image of his penis.
