Child Porn Victims Under 15, Man From Jasper County Charged
A man is being held in the Jasper County Jail without bond after being charged with producing child pornography.
Springfield federal prosecutors say Ian Holman contacted girls under age 15 on Facebook, offering money if they would perform sex acts and send him naked photos of themselves.
The girls were in the Webb City and Carthage areas.
Court papers say Holman friended the girls on Facebook and offered them money in exchange for sex acts and photos.
One 13-year-old did send Holman photos of herself.
Other girls between 12 and 15-years-old were contacted.
A sheriff's deputy ended up going to Holman's home and he ran off into some woods.
Holman was eventually found after other officers and a K-9 unit were brought in for a search that lasted about an hour.
