GUILTY PLEA IN POSSESSION OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY
On January 27th, Gary Shields, age 29, of Edwardsville, pled guilty to the Federal District Court in East St. Louis, to a 1-count indictment charging him with the alleged possession of Child Pornography.
Shields has been previously convicted of possession of Child Pornography and was sentenced to probation by the Madison County Court. The Court stated that Shields has no permanent address, though he is on a sex registry list, but owns a truck and a small trailer which he moves around from time to time.
The Edwardsville Police approached Shields after he had parked his vehicle on the Lewis and Clark Campus and Shields allegedly admitted to police that he was in possession of child pornography. After allegedly giving police permission to search his vehicle, a thumb-drive with numerous images of child pornography was found.
Also allegedly found in Shields’ possession were numerous writings in which he expresses his belief that child pornography should be acceptable in society and that sex between adults and children should be acceptable and not illegal.
Maximum penalties are up to 20 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both and supervised release for life. The minimum sentence of imprisonment is 10 years.
