Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that the Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) of his office arrested a Kerrville father and son for offenses involving child pornography. Sixty-one-year-old Johnny Richard Ingram Sr. was charged with one count of possession of child pornography.  His 39-year-old son, Johnny Richard Ingram Jr., who is a registered sex offender, was charged with three counts of promotion of child pornography. If convicted, Ingram Sr. could face up to 10 years in prison, and his son could face 60 years.

During an undercover investigation, the CEU discovered child pornography was allegedly shared from a device linked to the Ingrams’ home in Kerrville. While executing a search warrant, investigators allegedly found child pornography on multiple laptops. During separate interviews, the father and son confessed to downloading and saving child pornography, according to the AG office.
