Blue Springs man accused of possessing child pornography


A Blue Springs man was arrested Tuesday for possession of child pornography.


According to Union County Sheriff's Department Investigator Roger Garner, Russell Keith Nicholson, 44, of 2256 Highway 178 East in Blue Springs, has been charged with one count of possession of child pornography.

Garner said he received information last week from the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, funded by the Mississippi Attorney General's office, that led to the search of Nicholson's address.  At that address, Garner said, two computers were seized that contained child pornography.

The computers are currently being processed in forensic examinations, Garner said.

Nicholson is currently being held at the Union County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
