Grand Jury Indicts Lubbock Man for Producing & Possessing Child Pornography
A grand jury indicted a Lubbock man on Wednesday (Jan. 9, 2019) for production and possession of child pornography.
According to KAMC News, authorities learned of 21-year-old Michael Hargrove (pictured above) when two people came to Shallowater Police on November 22, 2018, saying that Hargrove took sexually explicit pictures of two children living in the same house, including one who was related to him. One of those children, a boy, reportedly said Hargrove sexually abused him.
KAMC News reports police searched Hargrove’s computer and found the images, plus additional ones:
One of the images was a girl “approximately seven to eight old,” sexually touching a boy of about the same age. Another image depicted a woman sexually abusing a prepubescent girl.
Four children total said they were photographed by Hargrove, the outlet reports.
Hargrove was arrested on December 27, 2018, and has remained in jail since.
