45-year-old Christopher Lee Quillen of Franklin was arrested on Saturday, January 26 and charged with Possession of Child Pornography (O.C.G.A. 16-12-100 – Sexual Exploitation of Children.)

According to a report by Heard County Sheriff’s Office investigator Sgt. Dan Boswell, cyber tips and complaints originating from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children led to the initial investigation.

The subsequent execution of a search warrant at Quillen’s place of residence uncovered the alleged child pornography stored on an electronic device belonging to Quillen.

Sgt. Boswell says the investigation is ongoing and further charges may be pending.

A guilty verdict on the felony count of Child Pornography is punishable by imprisonment for not less than five nor more than 20 years and by a fine of not more than $100,000.00.
