Recognizing signs of physical child abuse
A 26-year-old Richmond man has been indicted by a Madison County grand jury on nearly 30 counts of alleged sex and pornography crimes involving minors, according to the attorney general’s office.
Dylan Minch was arrested Oct. 30 following an investigation from Andy Beshear’s Cyber Crimes Unit, according to a release from the attorney general. In a search, investigators found electronic devices that contained files of children engaged in sexual acts.
Forensic evidence revealed additional images of Minch engaging in acts that investigators felt warranted sex crime charges aside from the initial counts of child porn possession, Beshear’s office stated.
In addition to 20 counts of possession of child porn, Minch was indicted Jan. 17 with one count of first-degree sexual abuse and eight counts of the use of a minor under 16 years of age in a sex performance.
He was taken to the Madison County Detention Center on a $50,000 cash bond.
“We were able to take one more child predator off the streets and make our communities a little bit safer for our children,” said Beshear, who is also running for governor.
