Officers with the Richmond Police Department arrested Jason Baldwin, 38, Primrose Drive, Richmond, on a complaint warrant which charges him with first-degree sexual abuse of a victim under 12, use of a minor (under 16) in a sex performance and possess/viewing matter portraying sexual performances by a minor.
During an investigation of another case involving Baldwin, a search warrant was obtained for Baldwin's cellphone. Upon further testing, officers found 928 images of child pornography depicting juvenile males and females nude and performing sexual acts between the dates of June 2017 to January 2019.
On the phone, there were five images of the victim nude. Officers were able to identify the victim as someone that Baldwin knew through pictures of the victim on Christmas wearing the same shirt in the pornographic videos.
In an interview with the victim, when asked about Baldwin, the victim stated, "He's weird. He would touch me." The victim stated the defendant touched their privates on more occasions than can be recalled, according to the warrant.
The above was arrested and taken to the Madison County Detention Center where he remains Tuesday afternoon according to online jail records.
