INDIANAPOLIS – A Whitestown man faces federal charges after prosecutors say he sexually abused a 10-year-old girl—and recorded it.
Daniel Alan Jines, 36, is charged with 15 counts of producing child pornography, one count of receiving child pornography and another count of possessing child pornography.
According to federal prosecutors, the abuse occurred between May 2008 and May 2010. Jines is accused of coercing the girl to engage in explicit activity that he then recorded. Investigators found still images and video that showed the abuse, prosecutors said.
Jines is also accused of downloading child pornography on the internet that showed the abuse of children, including toddlers.
If convicted of producing child pornography, Jines faces life in prison. The receiving and possession counts carry 20 years in federal prison.
