Child Porn found on his Facebook page

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.

Got 2B Safe – My Rules – NCMEC

Knowing My Rules for Safety

1 – I CHECK FIRST with my parents, guardians, or other trusted adults before going anywhere, helping anyone, accepting anything, or getting into a car.

2 –  I TAKE A FRIEND with me when going places or playing outside.

3 –  I TELL people “NO” if they try to touch me or hurt me. It’s OK
for me to stand up for myself.

4 – I TELL my trusted adult if anything makes me feel sad, scared,
or confused.

Sometimes there are people who trick or hurt others.  No one has the right to do that to you.  So use these rules, and remember you are STRONG, are SMART, and have the right to be SAFE.


KidSmartz is a child safety program that educates families about preventing abduction and empowers kids in grades K-5 to practice safer behaviors.  This program offers resources to help parents, caregivers, and teachers protect kids by teaching and practicing the 4 Rules of Personal Safety using tips, printable activities, quizzes, articles, music, videos, and more.
