Missouri man facing federal child porn charges involving family

Sex charges and child porn charges seem to be in the headlines quite often in today's society. Some individuals may be falsely charged -- while others are found guilty of the accusations. Either way, having a child porn charge shared through different media outlets can influence the opinions of members of society. A Missouri man is now facing federal charges related to porn charges involving family members.

The 33-year-old man was charged with producing child porn as well as felony charges involving children ages 3 and 5, who were listed as family members, although the exact relation was not disclosed. The man also allegedly distributed and produced porn involving children. Authorities state this was done via the Internet and carries a potential minimum 15-year sentence. This sentence applies to each count that is charged, in the event of a conviction.

According to police, graphic images of the man with children were found on his computer, cell phone and other personal devices. They apparently learned of this situation after a family member alerted authorities that she had seen inappropriate images of her children with the man as she was seeking a photo to use for a Christmas card. The man was arrested following a police investigation and initially pleaded not guilty.

Missouri residents may continue to follow this case as details unfold. Being charged with possessing or distributing child porn or of sex crimes with minors can have a devastating consequence for individuals, whether they are innocent of the charges or convicted. Understanding the applicable laws and the best way to proceed with a defense could help accused individuals receive the best possible outcome in a specific situation.
