Versailles man arrested on child pornography charges
COLUMBIA — A Versailles man previously convicted of child molestation has been charged with possession of and promoting child pornography.
According to the state's court records database, Mylon Addis, 49, was taken into custody Wednesday after a warrant was issued for his arrest. The court found that he was a threat to the public's safety due to his criminal history and ordered him held without bond.
Addis was convicted in 2004 after pleading guilty to child molestation. He now faces three counts of failing to register as a sex offender after his conviction, in addition to one count of possession of child pornography and one count of promoting child pornography.
Addis pleaded not guilty to the new charges. He is scheduled in court July 22 for a bond hearing.
