A Wortham man is in jail, charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.
David Lloyd Kennedy, 44, was arrested Aug. 25, after Texas Attorney General’s Child Exploitation Unit received reports alleging Kennedy had uploaded images of child pornography to a website.
According to the Attorney General’s website, the CEU executed a search warrant of Kennedy’s home and seized several digital storage devices.
Examination of the devices showed large numbers of files containing child pornography.
Under questioning, Kennedy admitted using child pornography in the past but denied current involvement.
Possession of child pornography is a third-degree felony, punishable by two to 10 years in state prison and/or a fine of as much as $10,000.
The CEU announced Kennedy’s arrest Friday, and said the state had made 15 arrests of alleged offenders and 22 arrests for online solicitation of minors.
