Nampa man accused of sexually abusing girl he met online

April 18, 2013 


A 23-year-old Nampa man was arrested Tuesday on felony charges of child enticement and sexual abuse of a minor under 16.

Luke Allen Inman, who transferred from the Canyon County Jail to the Ada County Jail Wednesday, is being held on $250,000 bond.

Ada County Sheriff's investigators say Luke Allen Inman met a 14-year-old girl online through the social media site,, and asked her to meet him to have sex. He had sexual contact with him on the grounds of Kuna High School before classes began Tuesday morning, the sheriff's office says.

Investigators say they found evidence that Inman has contacted nearly 200 girls through social media since mid-March. Most of the girls were 14 to 16, and none were over 18.

"This man was aggressively seeking out young girls for one purpose — to sexually exploit them," said Detective Craig Durrell of the Idaho Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force in a press release. "He wanted to exchange pornographic images with them and ultimately meet in person to have sex with them."

Detectives are working to determine if there are other victims. Anyone with information on Inman is urged to call Ada County Sheriff's Dispatch, 377-6790.
