Laramie Man Pleads Not Guilty to Six Child Pornography Charges
A man accused of downloading and keeping child pornography at his Laramie home denied all six charges brought against him Wednesday in Albany County District Court.
Jeffrey Scott Lee, 60, pleaded not guilty on six counts of sexual exploitation of a child. If convicted, he could face up to 60 years in prison and $60,000 in fines.
Lee was arrested July 21 after allegedly admitting to Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation agents that he had child pornography on his computer, phone and digital media at his home.
Court documents say an agent got a warrant and searched Lee's home, where he allegedly found a desktop computer in the process of downloading suspected child pornography. The search also turned up at least 16 separate CDs containing "obvious child pornography" on the cover of each disc, according to the affidavit.
The affidavit goes on to say Lee allegedly admitted to having at least 20 images of child pornography.
Judge Jeffrey Donnell on Wednesday set Lee's trial for Nov. 8-9. Lee remains in custody on $20,000 cash bond.
