A Granite Shoals man was arrested Aug. 25 on a charge of possession of child pornography. Robby Lyn Neugent, 55, is being held in the Burnet County Jail on a $75,000 bond.
Granite Shoals Police Department Detective Allen Miley received a tip regarding Neugent’s possible possession of illicit images from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. That information led to a prolonged online investigation and, ultimately, Neugent’s arrest.
“The Granite Shoals Police Department is thoroughly committed to protecting innocent children and will continue to investigate these heinous online crimes,” reads a Sept. 5 media release from GSPD about the arrest.
The charge of possession of child pornography is a third-degree felony and carries possible fines of up to $10,000 and a prison sentence of two to 10 years.
To report an incident or suspicious situation that may involve the extraterritorial sexual exploitation of children, file a report on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children website or call 1-800-843-5678.
