Eldridge Man Arrested for Production of Child Pornography

January 3, 2013

DAVENPORT, IA – On January 2, 2013, James Edward Hall was arrested on a federal criminal complaint for producing child pornography involving a juvenile male victim. Hall had an initial appearance before United States District Judge John A. Jarvey shortly after his arrest. A preliminary hearing and a detention hearing are scheduled in Hall’s case for Friday, January 4, at 2:30 p.m.

Production of child pornography is punishable by at least 15 years imprisonment up to a maximum of 30 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, a minimum of 5 years supervised release up to a maximum term of supervised release of life, and a $100 special assessment to be paid to the crime victims assistance fund.

As in any criminal case, a criminal complaint is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
