Fulton man arrested for possession of child pornography

A Fulton man is arrested for possession of child pornography.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Office says it received a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone in the Fulton area had uploaded child pornography files to an online data storage service.  The files depicted girls between the ages of 8 and 12 engaging in sex acts. 

An investigator was able to identify the account holder as Kasey Watson back in February.  He was in the Callaway County jail on an unrelated charge at the time and investigators say he made statements that associated himself with account.

A warrant was issued for Watson for possession of child pornography, a second offense.  On Tuesday, he was arrested by Fulton police and is being held without bond.
