Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that the Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) of his office arrested 42-year-old Jessie Eugene Nalley, of Barry, Texas, on four counts of possession of child pornography, a third-degree felony.
A CyberTipline report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) led CEU investigators to Nalley, who admitted to possessing child pornography on a cell phone and uploading images to an online account. During a search of his home, investigators seized multiple digital storage devices for further examination by the Digital Forensics Unit of the attorney general’s office.
Attorney General Paxton’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 is producing or downloading child pornography you can report it to NCMEC.
