of the Year

August 26, 2016
AUSTIN, TX  –  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced the arrest of David Lloyd Kennedy, 44, for 10 counts of Possession of Child Pornography.

The Office of the Attorney General’s Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) received multiple reports from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s (NCMEC) CyberTipline that Kennedy uploaded images of child pornography to a micro-blogging website.

The report prompted CEU investigators to execute a search warrant at Kennedy’s home in Wortham, resulting in the seizure of several digital storage devices.

During an interview, Kennedy admitted he had observed child pornography in the past, but denied any involvement in this case.

A forensic examination of the seized devices found large amounts of child pornography.

For the charges of Possession of Child Pornography, Kennedy faces a third degree felony punishable by two to 10 years in state prison and/or a fine of no more than $10,000.

The CEU works tirelessly to keep predators away from vulnerable children in Texas.

Since January, the CEU has arrested 15 offenders of child pornography crimes and 22 offenders of online solicitation.

If you suspect or know anyone possessing or producing child pornography or involved in any child exploitation activities, please report it to the NCMEC at https://cybertip.org/
