ELKO — Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 22-year-old Elko man Sunday morning for statutory sexual seduction after he admitted to sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl, said Undersheriff Clair Morris.

Deputies received a call from the man’s wife on Saturday and she told them that he had sex with the girl, Morris said.

The man willingly went to the sheriff’s office for an interview and admitted he had slept with the girl and knew she was 15, Morris said.

Deputies then booked the man, Elko resident Matthew K. Blake, into the Elko County Jail on charges of statutory sexual seduction.

He said it only happened once, Morris said, but detectives are continuing to investigate the incident.

His bail was listed at $5,000.

Nothing like a woman scorned. That will teach him not to cheat on his wife. lol.


It is clever to manipulate the courts for one's own purpose. In Elko, it is easy breezy to screw someone over easy - especially enemies or anyone with an axe to grind.


what would the penalty be if it were a 22 yr old woman and a 15 yr old boy? a citation ? warning ?
