Laramie Man Faces 6 Child Pornography Charges
Court documents say investigators found a computer in the process of downloading child pornography during the search of a home in Laramie.
Jeffrey Scott Lee could face up to 60 years in prison and $60,000 in fines if found guilty of the six counts of sexual exploitation of a child charged against him. Lee's arraignment in Albany County District Court is set for Aug. 31.
Court documents allege that agents from the Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation interviewed Lee on July 21 regarding the alleged possession of child pornography. According to the affidavit, Lee allegedly admitted to having child pornography on his computer and phone, as well as on digital media at his house.
During a search of Lee's house, an agent allegedly discovered a desktop computer that was "running and appeared to be downloading suspected child pornography files," according to the affidavit, which says the filenames were consistent with child pornography.
Court documents say the search also turned up discs containing images and names of known child pornography victims. The agent who swore to the affidavit says he observed at least 16 separate CDs with child pornography printed on the cover of each disc.
Lee allegedly admitted to possessing at least 20 images of child pornography, according to the affidavit.
