CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office has joined the investigation into a former state representative charged with attempting to lure a teenage girl into a sexual encounter.

WMUR-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1U3R19I ) the Rockingham County Attorney’s Office had the sole jurisdiction over the prosecution of Kyle Tasker since he was arrested in early March.

The former representative of Rockingham County’s District 2 was charged with three drug offenses and one count of using a computer to lure a child.

Attorney General Joe Foster said his office is getting involved because the situation “may involve issues of public integrity.”

Prosecutors say Tasker communicated with a 14-year-old girl on Facebook and offered to buy her alcohol and marijuana in addition to proposing sexual contact.

Tasker and his attorney haven’t commented on the charges.
