    A 24-year-old man was in jail Monday on suspicion of several felony offenses including intercourse with a minor and possession of child pornography after he was allegedly found at an Escondido house with a missing 12-year-old girl who he met on a social networking site, according to police and jail records. 

VISTA (CNS) - A man accused of having sex with a 12-year-old Escondido girl he met on a social networking site pleaded not guilty Thursday to 10 felony charges, including possession of child pornography.

Christopher Bradley Nutt, 24, faces 20 years in state prison if convicted, said Deputy District Attorney Patricia Lavermicocca.

During Nutt's brief arraignment at the Vista Courthouse, Superior Court Judge Sim von Kalinowski ordered the defendant held on $1.175 million bail.

In addition to possession of child pornography, Nutt is charged with six counts of child molestation, one count of unlawful sexual intercourse with a child under 16 and two counts of using a child for child pornography.

Lavermicocca said the alleged crimes happened between May 1 and May 27.

"They are all very serious charges," the prosecutor said outside court. "He's (Nutt) alleged to have had sex with a minor under the age of 14 years old; he's alleged to have engaged in an act of sodomy with a child under the age of 14; and he's alleged to have had oral sex with a child under the age of 14."

The girl's mother reported her daughter missing early Sunday, and an investigation led officers to a home on Nightingale Place, where they allegedly found the girl and the defendant in a bedroom.

Nutt was arrested and the alleged victim was reunited with her parents.

Police said Nutt had recently moved from San Dimas to Escondido.

A readiness conference was set for June 6 and a preliminary hearing for June 13.
