DENVER — A 30-year-old man is facing federal charges that he made child pornography at his home in Denver.
Police were first led to Jesse Evans when an undercover Denver police officer downloaded a file containing child pornography off of a peer-to-peer server. The IP address of the computer where the file came from belonged to a computer owned by Evans.
Working in conjunction with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the FBI, a more thorough search of Evans’ computers revealed that he was in possession of child pornography videos that appeared to have been shot at his home. The affidavit states Evans “had access to three prepubescent minors,” who appeared in the videos.
Evans faces three counts of production of child pornography along with charges for possessing and distributing child pornography. He is being held without bond and would face no less than 15 years in prison if convicted. The alleged felonies carry a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
