Clinton man admits to producing child porn, affidavit says

Posted: January 29, 2014 - 5:56pm

Nicholas Anthony, Derose, 42, of Clinton, was charged with 41 felony counts for possession of child pornography Wednesday and has admitted to also producing child pornography, according to a prosecutor’s affidavit.

The affidavit filed by 20th Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Cody Hiland in Van Buren County Circuit Court states reasonable cause for Derose’s arrest warrant was obtained by investigators with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Investigations and assisting agencies.

The affidavit states federal agents, the United States Secret Service, Arkansas State Police and the Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office conducted a search warrant Monday at Derose’s residence at 410 Glacier Road.

Derose admitted to agents that he had video of child pornography and that he distributed images of child pornography on the Internet, according to the affidavit.

The document states the exact number of images of child pornography Derose has produced is not known, “however the known images at this time are approximately 41 and are expected to be significantly higher upon the conclusion of the investigation.”

Derose was issued a $250,000 bond Wednesday and will wear an electronic monitor if bonded out of jail.

He is subject of a no contact order and may not be present where children congregate, according to court information.

Derose is set to be arraigned Feb. 10 before 20th Circuit Court Division 2 Judge Mike Maggio in Faulkner County.

Derose’s jail intake photo and booking information were not available by press time Wednesday, but will be provided by Van Buren County Sheriff’s Office Thursday, according to the sheriff’s office.

See thecabin.net for an updated story Thursday.

 

Editor's note: A digital file of Derose's intake photo was provided late Wednesday by the VBCSO.

Oops

Should of talked to his lawyer before making all of those admissions. Now he won't see the light of day for a long time, if ever. I expect he will spend a lot of that time in solitary too, since most cellmates will not look too kindly on the nature of his offenses and may wish to administer their own kind of punishment.

Child molesters who are

Child molesters who are segregated in prison for their own safety tend to end up in the general population by "accident".

sad

By his admission to 'producing' child porn, I really hope they are able to identify the child/children that he personally victimized so that they can receive some type of help/counseling.
