PICKENS COUNTY, Ala. (WTVA) - Alabama authorities announced a multi-agency investigation led to the arrest of a Pickens County man on two child pornography charges.
According to the District Attorney's Office, 36-year-old Christopher Shaw was charged Monday night with being a parent or guardian permitting children to engage in the production of obscene matter and possession with intent to disseminate obscene matter depicting children younger than 17.
Authorities say his bond was set at $1 million.
“Because of the nature of the allegations and the age of the alleged victim, I asked the court to set a higher bond and that request was granted,” District Attorney Andy Hamlin said.
The Reform Police Department and Pickens County Sheriff’s Office helped with taking Shaw into custody Monday night. Shaw is currently being held at the Pickens County Jail.
The investigation is ongoing and more charges are possible.
