Court records show Enger reportedly started kissing and inappropriately touching the victim in June 2018, and after several months of grooming the victim, the relationship became more sexual.

"The defendant would bring the victim to his residence where multiple sex acts occurred," a police report said.

In the report, police said nude images of the victim were found on a smartphone that Enger had which was not connected to a cellular network.
