UPDATE: Columbia man indicted for possession of child pornography
KANSAS CITY - The man who federal prosecutors charged with child pornography back in August, has now been indicted.
According to the complaint filed August 30th, Steven Dean French had child pornography in his possession as recently as Wednesday, August 29. The FBI started investigating after getting a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that child pornography had been uploaded to a Yahoo! e-mail account in April.
Agents traced the IP address to French's home on Red Fox Court in Columbia. They interviewed French on Wednesday, during which he reportedly admitted to downloading and uploading child pornography to and from the internet. Agents reported finding images of child pornography on French's computer.
