Attorney General Jack Conway's office announced Wednesday that a 28-year-old registered sex offender in Western Kentucky has been arrested on child pornography charges.
Jeffrey Ray Skaggs is charged with three counts of distribution of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor, a Class D felony.
On March 18, undercover investigators downloaded three video files depicting a sexual performance by a minor from an IP address that was traced to Skaggs' home in Henderson, the attorney general's office said. He was arrested after a search of his home.
Skaggs, who has used the alias Jeffrey Allen Duckworth, was being held at the Henderson County jail on a $10,000 full cash bond.
Skaggs became a registered sex offender after he was convicted of third-degree sodomy in 2003.
