TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — Prosecutors say the owner of a New Jersey home where Rosie O'Donnell's teenage daughter was found last week sent the girl a nude photo.
Ocean County prosecutors say 25-year-old Steven Sheerer had inappropriate online communications with the 17-year-old girl. The Barnegat resident is scheduled to appear Monday afternoon via video conference in state Superior Court in Toms River.
He faces charges of child endangerment and distribution of obscenity to a minor. His bail was set at $40,000 cash, and he faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted.
Sheerer was arrested Friday night at his home. Chelsea O'Donnell was found at the home Aug. 18, hours after her mother posted a statement online saying the girl had left home in South Nyack, New York, a week earlier.
This story has been corrected to show Chelsea O'Donnell was found last week, not this week.
