UPDATE: Clark County Deputy Faces Federal Child Porn Charges
SPRINGFIELD -- A former Clark County deputy is facing local sex charges involving a minor and a federal child pornography charge.
Clark County Prosecutor Andy Wilson says his office presented formal charges against Dustin Hensley, 30. Hensley is accused of making child porn and having sex with a teenage boy. He popped up on the FBI’s radar after an investigation into Internet child porn.
“As a result of their investigation it became clear that we actually had local charges here as well pertaining to an actual victim and actual sex acts," explained Andy Wilson, Clark County Prosecutor.
Clark County Sheriff's deputies and FBI agents executed a search warrant at Dustin Hensley's home last Friday. Inside they say they found evidence of child pornography. Prosecutors say the victim, a boy under the age of 16, came to police and claimed he had sex with the former deputy.
The prosecutor’s office didn’t get into details about the victim, but said there was evidence that Hensley had sexual relations with the boy.
“I think it's devastating they are the ones that we are looking to protect and serve,” said Mona Lisa Minor of Springfield.
Hensley had been with the Clark County Sheriff’s Office since 2001. He was hired as a deputy in 2005, and resigned Tuesday amid the charges. He was booked into the Clark County Jail at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Police say there is no evidence of other victims, but stress that the investigation is ongoing.
"We hope that if there are other victims out there that they will come forward," stated Sheriff Gene Kelly.
Hensley faces one count of sexual battery and unlawful sexual conduct with a minor. The federal charge includes production of child pornography.
Sheriff Gene Kelly says while Hensley’s arrest is unfortunate, his office has zero tolerance for officers who break the law.
"No one is above the law. I mean no matter what position you have you have to pay the price," Kelly said. "If you've done wrong you have to go to jail.”
Hensley will be arraigned on the federal charge Thursday afternoon. If convicted of all charges, he could face more than 25 years in prison.
