Convicted sex offender accused of preying on minor electronically


A Longview man appeared Friday in Clark County Superior Court on suspicion of attempting to lure a 15-year-old who has developmental delays through electronic communications.

Jackie J. Davis, 33, communicated with the girl electronically, “making several sexual references seeking to entice and solicit (her) to engage in immoral sexual activity,” wrote Vancouver police Officer Rey Reynolds in a court affidavit.

He is scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 22 on a charge of communication with a minor for immoral purposes.

Davis, who is a convicted sex offender, also asked the girl to keep their communications “secret” and to later “erase the messages,” Reynolds wrote.

Judge David Gregerson held Davis in lieu of $75,000 bail and appointed Vancouver attorney Jeff Barrar to defend him.
