Feds: Neosho man used six children to produce child pornography

(From the U. S. Attorney for the Western District of Missouri)

A Neosho, Mo., man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for producing child pornography.

James Lyndon McFadin, Jr., 32, of Neosho, was charged in a seven-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield, Mo., on March 29, 2016. McFadin was arrested this morning and remains in federal custody pending a detention hearing next week.

The federal indictment alleges that McFadin used six children – three females and two males, who ranged in age from approximately 5 to 16 years old – to produce child pornography between Jan. 1 and Dec. 19, 2015.

McFadin is also charged with one count of receiving and distributing child pornography over the Internet from Jan. 1 to Dec. 19, 2015.

The indictment also contains a forfeiture allegation, which would require McFadin to forfeit to the government any property used to commit the alleged offenses, including an HTC cell phone and an Asus laptop computer.

This case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ami Harshad Miller. It was investigated by the FBI, the Southwest Missouri Cyber Crime Task Force and the Neosho, Mo., Police Department.
