Possession of Child Pornography - September 6, 2011

A George County Man has been arrested and charged with possession of child pornography by the George County Sheriff’s Department and the Office of Attorney General, announced Sheriff John A. Keel and Attorney General Jim Hood today.

This arrest was made by the George County Sheriff’s Department, Jackson County Sheriff’s Department and investigators with the Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit of the Attorney General's Cyber Crime Division as part of a joint effort between George County, Jackson County and the Office of Attorney General's Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Task Force.

Marvin Calvin Lee Jr., 45 years old, from the 100 block of Howard Road, Lucedale MS was arrested on Friday September 2, 2011 on fifty (50) counts of possession of child porn. He is currently being held in the George County Regional Correctional Facility.

Marvin Lee Jr. faces five to forty years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections (MDOC) for each count, for a minimum potential of 250 years behind bars.

“I appreciate the partnership with Sheriff Keel and Sheriff Byrd in our war against child pornography,” said Attorney General Hood. “We are united in this fight against those who choose to prey on our children.”

As with all cases, the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.

Authorized for release by Sheriff John A. Keel
