Town Council Member, 42, Allegedly Had Sex with Teen Girl After Posing as 17-Year-Old Online

A former Connecticut town official has been accused of carrying on a years-long sexual relationship with a teenage girl whom he first met online while he was pretending to be a 17-year-old boy, according to multiple news outlets.

Jon Landry, a former Farmington council member who left office as word of the investigation spread, allegedly posed as the teenage boy when he first connected with the girl with whom he would later have a relationship — all while he was married with two children — according to the Hartford Courant.

While the girl, now a 22-year-old woman, reportedly said that their sex was consensual and did not occur while she was underage, one local political official likened the dynamic to the grooming of a child.

Landry, 42, has been charged with second-degree harassment and interfering with police, both misdemeanors, local TV station WTIC reports.
