April 23, 2015
LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge announced today that a Pulaski County man has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges and has been sentenced to 40 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction on 10 counts of distributing, viewing or possessing sexually explicit conduct involving a child, a Class C felony. Rutledge released the following statement:
“I appreciate the hard work of the Attorney General’s Cyber Crimes Unit and the Little Rock Police Department for conducting a thorough investigation to make sure this individual does not continue to exploit and endanger our children. The Attorney General’s Office will continue to pursue these individuals across the State.”
Christopher Boyd, 54, of Little Rock was sentenced by Pulaski County Circuit Judge Leon Johnson. Boyd will be required to register as a sex offender. He has previous convictions for possession of child pornography and failing to register as a sex offender in California.
Special Agents with the Attorney General’s Cyber Crimes Unit arrested Boyd in April 2014 after executing a search warrant at Boyd’s residence. Agents conducted a forensic exam on Boyd’s computer and found evidence that he downloaded and viewed child pornography.
The Little Rock Police Department assisted in the arrest and investigation.
