Bristol Man Indicted on Child Pornography Charge

Burlington, Vt. - The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Vermont announced on Friday a federal grand jury returned a single-count indictment on Thursday, charging Cody Clark, 26, of Bristol, with production of child pornography.

 

According to court records, the investigation into Clark began when Google sent a tip to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) that a user had uploaded images of child porn.

 

NCMEC forwarded the cybertip to the Vermont Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC), which further investigated Clark, the suspected user of the Google account, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Vermont.

 

Officials say the ICAC obtained a search warrant for what was believed to be Clark's home. While executing the warrant, images of child porn were found on Clark's computer, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Vermont.  Those images identified in the cybertip were among the ones found on Clark's computer.

 

Clark told police he made the images and used them for sexual gratification, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of Vermont. 

 

If convicted, Clark faces a mandatory minimum of 15 years and up to 30 years in prison, a minimum of five years to life of supervised release, and fines up to $250,000.
