Brandon Man Arrested for Possessing Child Pornography
A Brandon man was arrested Tuesday and charged with one count of child exploitation for possession of child pornography, Attorney General Jim Hood announced.
Jeremy Lee Craig, 28, was arrested at his home after an investigation into his suspicious online activity. He was booked into the Rankin County jail with no bond set and is awaiting his initial appearance.
If convicted, Craig faces up to 40 years in prison. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
This case was investigated by the AG’s Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force with assistance from the Rankin County Sheriff’s Office, which is an ICAC affiliate, and the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation. It will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Brandon Ogburn.
