Tuscaloosa County Man Indicted for Producing and Possessing Child Pornography
BIRMINGHAM – A federal grand jury today indicted a Tuscaloosa County man on child pornography charges, announced U.S. Attorney Joyce White Vance, FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard D. Schwein Jr. and Tuscaloosa County Sheriff Billy Sharp.
A five-count indictment filed in U.S. District Court charges MURRY MALONE BAILEY, 63, with producing child pornography between November 2010 and April 2012, and with possessing child pornography in Tuscaloosa County between August 2010 and May 2012.
The maximum penalty for producing child pornography is 30 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. The maximum penalty for possessing child pornography is 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
The Tuscaloosa Sheriff’s Department and the FBI investigated the case, which Assistant U.S. Attorney Amanda Wick is prosecuting.
Members of the public are reminded that an indictment contains only charges. A defendant is presumed innocent of the charges and it will be the government’s burden to prove a defendant’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt at trial.
