ABILENE, TX  –  Abilene police arrested a correctional officer after child porn was found on his Facebook page.

Paulin Yagina Gatchoua, 27, is charged with possession of child porn and possession with intent to promote child porn.  He’s being held on $90,000 bond.

According to the search warrant obtained by KTXS, the National Center for Missing and Endangered Children contacted APD on June 1 after discovering a 52 second video on Gatchoua’s Facebook page.  It showed an infant female being sexually abused by an adult male.

Police executed a search warrant on Thursday at Gatchoua’s apartment on Nonesuch Road.  They seized cell phones, computers, storage devices and electronic files.

KTXS contacted TDCJ about Gatchoua’s arrest.  A spokesman said he was hired July 18, 2016 as a correctional officer at the Robertson Unit.

His employment is pending the outcome of the investigation.  Until then, he is not allowed on TDCJ property.

According to his Facebook page, Gatchoua went to school in Cameroon, Africa.  He says he also studied criminal justice at the University of Georgia.

AG Paxton Applauds Court Ruling Affirming Rejection of Pornography Convention

May 12, 2017
AUSTIN, TX  –  Yesterday, U.S. District Judge Sidney Fitzwater dismissed the complaint of pornographers, Three Expo Events L.L.C., demanding the right to use the Dallas Convention Center to hold an illicit convention.  Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton stood with leaders of the City of Dallas and the Dallas Citizens Council in defending the city’s right to keep taxpayer resources from being used to promote the pornography industry.

“It is vital that governmental entities have the ability to exclude sexually-oriented businesses from property that they own,” Attorney General Paxton said.  “The City of Dallas, through its democratically-elected officials, rightfully decided that its convention center and taxpayer monies should not be home to an event where obscenity and criminal activity occurs.”

Attorney General Paxton originally became involved in the case in 2016 when he filed an amicus brief supporting the City’s decision to not host a pornography convention on city-owned property.

Attorney General Paxton submitted a second amicus brief in March 2017 supporting the city’s motion to dismiss the case.  The court granted the City’s motion to dismiss on May 11, 2017.  Joining Attorney General Paxton on his amicus briefs was the Dallas Citizens Council, a nonprofit organization comprising business and civic leaders in the Dallas region whose sole purpose is to provide leadership on public policy issues to improve the lives of Dallas citizens.

Attorney General Paxton is fighting pornography in Texas because of its demonstrated harm on children.

Attorney General Paxton’s Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) proactively seeks out and arrests predators who commit crimes against children using technology and online sources.

California beauty pageant winner pleads guilty to Child Porn

NEWPORT BEACH, CA  –  A former winner of California’s Mrs. Orange County beauty pageant has pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography and lewd acts with a child.

Meghan Alt, 25, was arrested for allegedly using a 4-year-old relative in creating and distributing child pornography.

County court records say 27-year-old Meghan Alt entered the pleas last Friday and was sentenced to 300 days in jail and three years of probation.

Prosecutors dismissed two additional charges of lewd acts with a child.

Alt was ordered to serve the jail sentence starting Friday.

Alt’s lawyer did not immediately respond to an emailed message seeking comment.

She was arrested in 2015.  Prosecutors said she sold images of a 4-year-old relative to a marine.

Alt is from the Southern California City of Irvine and has three children.

She was crowned Mrs. Orange County in 2014 and competed in the Mrs. California contest the same year.
