NORTH DAKOTA—The Cass County State's Attorney's office has now filed charges against 24-year old Nicollas Johnson.

He faces gross sexual imposition and child porn possession charges here, on top of kidnapping charges filed by Nebraska authorities.

Prosecutors allege Johnson met a 14-year old girl during an online gaming session.

They charge he drove to Nebraska, picked up the teen and brought her to his home in Harwood.

Police found her at a Fargo hotel, after a good samaritan picked her up on an area road.

Johnson was arrested at a truck stop in Grand Forks.

His family argues that Johnson has mental health issues.
