    Joplin Man Indicted for Producing Child Pornography
    Additional Charges Follow Complaint for Exploiting 4-Year-Old Victim

    August 24, 2011


    Beth Phillips, United States Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, announced that a Joplin, Missouri man was indicted by a federal grand jury today for producing child pornography, as well as for receiving child pornography over the Internet and being in possession of child pornography.

    Jason Dewayne Beshears, 29, of Joplin, was charged in a 14-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield, Mo. Today’s indictment replaces an Aug. 16, 2011, criminal complaint that charged Beshears with videotaping his sexual exploitation of a 4-year-old victim in order to produce child pornography.

    Today’s indictment alleges that Beshears exploited a minor victim over a one-year period to produce digital videos of child pornography. Beshears is charged with exploiting a minor to produce child pornography on Aug. 28, 2010, and on seven more occasions between May 5 and Aug. 9, 2011. Beshears is also charged with five counts of receiving child pornography over the Internet from July 26 to Aug. 20, 2010, and one count of possessing child pornography on Aug. 9, 2011.

    The federal indictment also contains a forfeiture allegation, which would require Beshears to forfeit to the government any property used to commit the alleged offenses, including two laptop computer, an Apple iPhone, and a digital camera.

    According to an affidavit filed in support of the original criminal complaint, Joplin police officers were called to Beshears’ apartment at about 10 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2011, in response to a complaint that a man found his 4-year-old daughter inside Beshears bedroom with the door shut. He removed his daughter and went to confront Beshears, the affidavit says, but when he returned to the room, Beshears was gone. Joplin police officers located Beshears about a block away and took him into custody.

    Investigators conducted a forensic examination of Beshears’ laptop computer, the affidavit says, and found a large quantity of video files of various forms of sexual abuse being conducted by Beshears on the child victim, as well as numerous images of child erotica. The video files allegedly were downloaded to Beshears’ laptop from March 2010 to Aug. 9, 2011. Investigators also found more than 20 photos and three videos of sexual abuse being conducted by Beshears on the child victim, which the affidavit says were dated Aug. 9, 2011...."

    I can't link to any social sites. It's quite clear how the little one is connected to this guy. Bless her heart, she probably trusted him and so did her dad. What a betrayal.

    Hopefully, they'll take a close look at this guy's past interaction with other children.

    The father described above was listed as a "Hero of Joplin", as after he made sure his family was safe following the recent tornado, he helped many many others. Seems like someone took advantage of this time to hurt a child. Shame!!!

    How on God's green earth does a father handle such a horrific situation? You must die inside for your little baby, and then what? Poor man. Poor little girl. Prayers for her.
