OAG’s Child Exploitation Unit Arrests McLennan County Man for Possession of Child Pornography

AUSTIN, TX  –  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton announced today that the Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) of his office arrested 23-year-old Charles David Baker, of Woodway, on two counts of Possession of Child Pornography, a third-degree felony.  Baker could face up to 10 years in prison per charge if convicted.

Following a CyberTipline report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children involving the upload of an image of child pornography to an email account, CEU investigators executed a search warrant at Baker’s residence, where child pornography was found on his personal computer.

Investigators seized several additional digital storage devices that will be examined by the attorney general’s Digital Forensics Unit.

During an interview, Baker admitted the email account was his.

He was transported to the McLennan County Jail where he will appear before a magistrate.

The Texas Attorney General’s Office works to protect children by using the latest technology to track down some of the most profoundly evil predators online.

The CEU proactively seeks out and arrests predators who commit crimes against children using technology and online sources.

Attorney General Paxton urges all parents and teachers to become aware of the risks our children face on the internet and take steps to help ensure their children’s safety.

If you suspect someone of producing or downloading child pornography you can report it to NCMEC.

Yadkin County dad charged with Child Abuse after leaving 3 kids in hot car while in court

YADKINVILLE, NC  –  A man was arrested after police say he left three children inside a hot car while he was in court, according to a news release from Yadkinville police.

Brandon Lee Lewis, 34, of Hamptonville, is charged with three counts of misdemeanor child abuse.

On July 14, Yadkin County deputies at the courthouse were approached by a child who said he was waiting for his dad in the car and it was too hot.

A deputy accompanied the child back to the car and found two other children in the vehicle soaked in sweat.

Lewis was located in the courthouse in a traffic courtroom.  He told Yadkinville police that his air conditioner was working earlier that morning.

Yadkinville police took Lewis into custody and he was placed under a $1,500 secured bond.

The children, ages 10, 9 and 3, did not need medical attention.

Yadkin County deputies gave the children some water and a cool place to wait in the courthouse until their mom could come pick them up.
