AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced the Attorney General’s Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) successfully executed a search warrant resulting in the arrest of Alan Keith Stout, 47, of Big Lake, for two counts of possession of child pornography.
A CEU investigator received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) which reported a web site containing child pornography was being hosted via an IP address that resolved back to Stout’s residence and place of business. CEU Investigators executed a search warrant at Stout’s residence and business resulting in the discovery of numerous images of child pornography on Stout’s laptop computer. During a subsequent interview, Stout confessed to downloading and possessing the illegal images.
“One more dangerous individual is off the streets and behind bars thanks to the efforts of the Child Exploitation Unit and their coordination with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children,” said Attorney General Paxton. “My office will remain steadfast in protecting our children and our communities from the heinous acts of these child predators and continue to seek justice against them.”
The Texas Attorney General’s Office works to protect children by taking child predators off the Internet and putting them into jail. This agency proactively seeks out and arrests predators who commit crimes against children using technology and the Internet. The office utilizes the latest technology to track down some of the most profoundly evil predators on the Internet.
Attorney General Paxton urges all parents and teachers to realize the risks our children face online, and take steps to help ensure their children’s safety. For more information on cyber safety, please visit: https://www.
