An arrest warrant has been issued for a Grand Rapids man accused of possessing child pornography.
48 year old Daryl Wayne Phelps was scheduled to make an initial court appearance on 7 felony counts of possession of pornographic work involving minors on Monday, but failed to appear. That’s when the warrant was issued.
In July of 2012, a Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigation downloaded a file containing child pornography, which was traced back to Phelps IP address. In November of 2012, Phelps computers were confiscated. 39 suspected child pornography videos were found.
Each of the 7 counts against Phelps carry a maximum sentence of 5 years in prison and a $5000 fine.
