Lucedale Woman Charged for Creating Child Porn

April 4, 2019

Investigators with Attorney General Jim Hood’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force arrested a woman in Lucedale Wednesday for allegedly producing child pornography.

Mary Yvonne Torres, 37, was arrested at her home after investigators received information connecting her to a child exploitation arrest by the Louisiana Attorney General’s Office. She was charged with one count of child exploitation for production of child pornography with more charges expected. She was booked in the George County Detention Center, awaiting an initial appearance.

If convicted, Torres faces up to 40 years in prison and $500,000 in fines. 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 ICAC Task Force with assistance from the Louisiana Department of Justice and ICAC affiliate agencies Mississippi Bureau of Investigation and George County Sheriff’s Office. It will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Brandon Ogburn.
