Clinton Man Arrested for Child Pornography
 

A Clinton man has been arrested for being in possession of multiple pictures of child pornography.  Michael E. Ray of Highway 65 North in Clinton has been charged by 20th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Marcus Vaden with 110 Counts of Possession of Child Pornography.

      On July 21, 2010, Clinton Police were contacted by a local citizen notifying them that Ray may be in possession of child pornography.  The Clinton Police Department contacted the 20th Judicial District Drug Crime Task Force and the Arkansas State Police for further investigation.  Agents obtained a search warrant and recovered a computer and hard drive from Ray’s residence.  The evidence obtained is still be analyzed to determine if additional items of child pornography are present.

      “Agents are continuing to investigate and analyze Mr. Ray’s computer to determine if more child pornography is present or if there is any evidence that he attempted to or has contacted children over the internet.”, Vaden said. “Those activities often go hand in hand.”

      Ray is currently being held in the Van Buren County Detention Center.
