Jefferson County man, 66, faces charges of distributing, possessing child pornography

February 6, 2012


Jefferson County prosecutors have filed charges accusing a 66-year-old rural Nortonville man of distributing and possessing child pornography.

Sheriff Jeff Herrig said officers last week executed a search warrant in connection with an investigation conducted by a Kansas Attorney General’s Office and Wichita police task force that investigates Internet crimes against children.

Jefferson County Attorney Jason Belveal said he has filed two counts of sexual exploitation of a child against the man. In one count he’s accused of distributing child pornography, and prosecutors accuse him of possessing it in the second count.

The man posted bond after his arrest. The Journal-World generally does not identify sex crime suspects unless they are convicted.
