BREAKING!! Former ABC News Producer Charged With Possession Of Child Pornography
A previous ABC News producer, James Gordan Meek, was smashed with child porn accusations. The Federal prosecutors charged Meek with being involved in sexually graphic discussions on sexually harassing young children.
The prosecutors reported that Meek got arrested this Tuesday under the charges of transporting child pornography. Meek has been sharing and receiving data on child sexual harassment and abuse since 2014.
According to the court’s documentation, Dropbox reported a lead to the FBI Washington Field Office’s Child Exploitation and Human Trafficking Task Force. Dropbox claimed the presence of five child porn videos on one of its user’s accounts.
Earlier last year, on April 27, Meek left ABC News on the same day of the search operation at his Arlington, Virginia residence, conducted by the federal agents.
As per the accusations, a cache full of child porn, including images and videos, was found on Meek’s iPhone, laptop, and portable hard drive.
The Department of Defense stated:
“According to court documents, several of Meek’s devices allegedly contained images depicting children engaged in sexually explicit conduct and multiple chat conversations with users engaged in sexually explicit conversations where the participants expressed enthusiasm for the sexual abuse of children.”
According to the disturbing affidavit:
“The iPhone 8 contained three chat conversations in which the username ‘Pawny4’ was engaging in sexually explicit conversations where the participants expressed enthusiasm for the sexual abuse of children. In two of those conversations, Pawny4 received and distributed child pornography images and video files through Kik, an internet-based messaging platform.”
A representative from ABC News refused to give any comments regarding the accusations about Meek.
Meek is looking at a mandatory sentence of a minimum of 5 years in prison and a maximum of 20 years.
