The 46-year-old Bradford man was arrested last week on child pornography charges has waived his preliminary hearing.
Court papers say David Jacks of East Main Street sent more than 19 nude images of himself to a person he thought was a 14-year-old but who was actually an undercover investigator with the state police.
During an interview after his arrest Jacks said he started chatting with the person he knew as 14-year-old Sarah in early December on Instagram and Google Hangouts. He also said he asked her for nude photos and had seen and search for child pornography in the past.
Jacks remains in McKean County Jail.
