  • Man Facing A Dozen Felonies For Hundreds Of Images Of Child Porn

    April 18, 2017 | Blog Sex Crimes
  • Sex Crimes Defense Lawyer Salt Lake CityA man from Cedar City, Utah, is now facing a dozen felonies from his alleged possession of 156 digital images of child pornography. The 32-year-old man was also charged with aggravated child sexual abuse charges.

    That charge is the result of photos allegedly depicting the man committing sex acts with a 3-year-old. Whether or not the man was related to the child was not reported.

    For two months, investigators with the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the police department in Cedar City worked to compile enough evidence to get a search warrant.

     

    According to a police lieutenant with the Cedar City Police Department, the process for getting enough probable cause in cases like this can take quite some time.

    The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was the first to receive a report about the pictures. An Internet data storage company was responsible for the tip. That company also provided the dates and times that the material depicting child abuse was uploaded and which IP address it was uploaded to.

    According to the probable cause statement, “All 156 images are of nude prepubescent female children being raped by adult men and/or sexually exploited.” When taken into the police department for questioning, the man reportedly admitted to possessing and sharing the pictures as well as to taking pictures of the 3-year-old and stating that he might have touched the child. The statement said that there were two photos that showed he did touch the child.

    No child should ever be subjected to abuse. However, those who are charged with sex crimes against children do have a right to a fair trial. They have a right to appeal an unfavorable verdict. An experienced attorney can provide information on how to best approach such a case, including how to build a strong defense against the charges.
