CYBER CRIMES UNIT ARRESTS PULASKI COUNTY MAN
LITTLE ROCK – A Pulaski County man was arrested today by agents from the Attorney General’s Office for possession of child pornography, Attorney General Dustin McDaniel announced.
Christopher L. Boyd, 52, of Little Rock was arrested on 30 counts of distributing, possessing or viewing matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child, a Class C felony. Boyd was being held in the Pulaski County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
Agents with the Attorney General’s Cyber Crimes Unit executed a search warrant this morning at Boyd’s residence in the 2700 block of Elkhart Drive. Investigators seized four computers and other electronic evidence. That evidence will be analyzed at the Cyber Crimes Unit’s Forensic Lab in Little Rock.
Special Agent Chad Meli of the Attorney General’s Office began investigating Boyd in February after suspecting that child pornography was being possessed at his residence.
The United States Marshals Service and Little Rock Police Department assisted in the investigation and arrest.
Additionally, the Little Rock Police Department also arrested Boyd for failing to register as a sex offender.
The Attorney General’s Office will turn over its completed case file to Sixth Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Larry Jegley.
Charges are merely accusations and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
