UPDATE: Child porn suspect also charged with child porn production

Baldwin County

BALDWIN COUNTY, Ala. (WKRG) — Another child porn charge for 38-year-old Baldwin County man arrested Tuesday.

Late Tuesday night, after authorities already arrested Alexander Pappas for possession obscene content of persons under 17 – they also charged him with Production of Pornography with Minors.

The District Attorney’s Office says one victim is involved, and that Pappas knows the victim and was aware the victim was under the age of 17.

While investigators are still working to determine if Pappas shared the images with anyone, Assistant District Attorney Kristi Hagood explains the emotional and behavioral repercussions of being used in child pornography.

“They live with the fear of people that they know, people that they meet, have seen their images,” she tells News 5. “Those children that we know have gone through that there are very high rates of anxiety and depression. The same study shows 60 percent of that age group who have been victims of child pornography have attempted suicide.”
