Canadian County Man Accused of Aggravated Possession of Child Pornography

01-Sep-2017

Acting on a tip received by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, the OSBI and Canadian County Sheriff's Office arrested a Mustang man on complaints of aggravated possession of child pornography.

After the NCMEC notified the OSBI that they received a tip that Bryan Hurst, 46, was uploading child pornography to social media, the OSBI determined the man was living in Canadian County and turned the investigation over to the Internet Crimes Against Children task force at the Canadian County Sheriff's Office.

Investigators obtained a warrant for Hurst's home to search for electronic devices.

According to the CCSO, Hurst admitted to investigators that he owned the social media accounts to which they referred, but when he found out why investigators were there, he stopped talking and asked for a lawyer.

Deputies say their search uncovered two electronic devices containing over 100 images of child pornography. They say the images and videos include the sexual abuse of children as young as newborn.

Investigators say they also seized multiple other electronic devices for further forensic examination.

Although he has yet to be formally charged, as of this writing Hurst remains in the Canadian County Jail on two counts of aggravated possession of child pornography. His bond is set at $100,000.

Aggravated possession of child pornography refers to the possession of 100 or more sexually explicit images of children, whether multiple copies of a single image or several different images. Under 21 O.S. § 1040.12a, conviction of aggravated possession of child pornography is punishable by a maximum penalty of life in prison.
