An investigation by the Indiana State Police has been ongoing since Dec. 8 and on Friday, a warrant was issued for Emminger's arrest. She was booked in to the Greene County Jail on Saturday.
The case was filed in Greene Circuit Court and when Emminger appears for an initial hearing, she will be charged with two counts of dissemination of matter harmful to minors, both class D felonies.
ISP Trooper Richard R. Klun started his investigation after the child's parent reported she had become suspicious, confiscated the child's iPhone then discovered nude pictures -- naked, full body pictures, and sexual text messages, sent to the child allegedly from Emminger.
The parent voluntarily and willingly gave possession of the iPhone to Trooper Klun for processing and evidence collection.
In a probable cause affidavit prepared by Klun, he stated that ISP checked Emminger's driver's license and the BMV photo of Emminger appeared to match the person in the pictures on the child's cell phone.
The child was then interviewed by a caseworker from the Department of Child Services (DCS) in Greene County.
Following the interview, Greene Circuit Court approved a search warrant for Emminger's cell phone.
On Dec. 11, Klun and Bloomfield Deputy Marshal Lt. Harvey Holt found Emminger working at Huck's gas station in Bloomfield and observed her with an iPhone. Emminger surrendered her phone to Klun without confrontation and agreed to talk with him at the Greene County Sheriff's Department.
The affidavit states Emminger told Klun she knew the child was 13 and it wasn't right, admitted she sent the first picture to the child but said it was meant as a joke. In a later interview, Emminger reportedly also indicated she had asked the child to send nude pictures in return. Again she allegedly stated she was aware the child was only 13 prior to sending and asking for nude pictures.
Evidence obtained after the iPhones were processed by a detective in Owen County includes a CD containing data files from both phones. The affidavit states the data recovered includes seven nude photos of Emminger.
Emminger's bond was set at $8,000 and she was released from jail the same day as her arrest after posting 10 percent of the bond -- $800.
