A former town official from Connecticut is facing charges that stemmed from a sexual relationship he had with a teenage girl.
Former Farmington Town Councilor Jon Landry was arraigned Monday on misdemeanor charges of harassment and interfering with police.
Authorities say the 42-year-old Landry, using a fake name, met the girl online in 2008 when she was 12 and started having a sex with her when she was 16.
According to the warrant, in 2008 the girl identified as “Doe” met a "Jason Davis" on AOL messenger.
She believed he was 17, living in Farmington with his parents. She was 12, and Jon Landry was 32.
In 2013 they met in person and she performed oral sex on him.
In 2014 “Doe” says “Davis” took her to a Republican convention, though that was an election night, so it's possible she meant a campaign party.
During this time “Doe” was in contact with a Jessica Monroe, said to be a friend of Davis' though she never met her.
A month after the Republican event “Doe” says she had sex with “Davis.”
“Doe” stated that Monroe helped her build the courage to have sex with Davis and on 12/22/14 she had sexual intercourse with Davis.
Monroe appeared to manipulate “Doe” using information “Doe” provided to Monroe regarding “Doe’s” relationships with other men.
The warrant also alleges the two had a contract to set rules for their friend with sexual benefits relationship.
The relationship seemed off and on again, including a sexual encounter last year in the Toys R Us parking lot in West Hartford.
Also that year “Doe” felt Davis was going to post nude photos so she turned to Newington police.
That same year “Doe” says Davis said, “if you want to buy yourself out of the contract let me know, I’m thinking $500.”
Police using text messages and phone numbers determined Davis was Jon Landry.
He is not facing sex-related charges because the girl was the age of consent and the relationship was consensual.
The charges stem from Landry's alleged threats against the now 22-year-old woman and his use of the "assumed name" in talking to police.
The Republican resigned in January.
In a statement on Tuesday, his attorney released a statement that said "My client has cooperated with the authorities, however this is an active investigation and we are limited in the information we can share. Mr. Landry looks forward to a speedy resolution to this investigation and case. We also ask that his family’s privacy be respected.”
According to his LinkedIn page, Landry said he is the director of information technology at Simon Konover Company.
