Charges in Underage Sex and Video Case

(Westville, IN) - Though the sex appeared consensual, LaPorte County Police arrested a man for having intercourse with his 14-year old girlfriend. Matthew Stupeck, 19, is charged in La Porte Circuit Court with Level 5 Felony Sexual Misconduct with a Minor and other counts.


According to court documents, the female victim was allegedly dating Stupeck when they engaged in purportedly consensual sexual intercourse in June at a home in Westville. The investigation also uncovered explicit images in Stupeck's possession of the underage girl in various sexual acts and poses.


Authorities say Stupeck appeared to have manipulated the girl into performing in the videos or pictures, and the images were stored in the suspect’s profile on Snapchat. Stupeck is also charged with a second count of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor along with Child Exploitation and Possession of Child Pornography.
