Purcell Man Arrested for Aggravated Possession of Child Pornography

This morning, February 1, 2013, members of the Oklahoma Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force arrested David Skaggs (dob: 11/16/1959) at his residence, 405 West Comanche, Purcell, Oklahoma. An OSBI agent initiated the investigation into the sharing of child pornography over the Internet. Skaggs distributed images of child pornography to the agent. This morning a search warrant was served at Skaggs’ residence by task force members from the Purcell Police Department, Oklahoma Attorney General’s Office, and the OSBI ICAC and Computer Crimes Units. An on-scene preview of computer-related items revealed child pornography images. The computer-related items will be sent to the OSBI Computer Crimes Unit for further examination. The investigation will continue to determine if any local children were on the images. Skaggs was booked into the McClain County Jail on one count of Aggravated Possession of Child Pornography and one count of Violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Unit. Aggravated possession means Skaggs possessed more than 100 images of child pornography.

A mug shot will be released when available.
