    Rutledge Announces Lonoke County Man Sentenced for Possessing Child Pornography


    January 10, 2019

    LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today announced that a Lonoke County man has been sentenced to 15 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction on child pornography charges.

    James Christopher Bynum, 47, of Cabot, pleaded guilty to four counts of possessing, distributing or viewing of matter depicting sexually explicit conduct involving a child. He was found in possession of numerous images and videos of adult men engaging in sexual intercourse and forced penetration with children as young as 9-10 years old.

    “Bynum possessed and shared horrific images of innocent children being victimized,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “These victims deserve justice. I am committed to getting these predators out of our neighborhoods where they cannot harm more children.”

    Bynum was arrested in March by the Attorney General’s Office Cyber Crimes Unit where special agents seized multiple electronic devices from his residence. An attorney from the Attorney General’s Office was appointed Special Deputy Prosecutor in the case by the 23rd Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Chuck Graham.
