Between May 2009 and April 2010, Richard Hinkley, age 56, of Kingfield, coerced a minor child to engage in sexually explicit conduct through online video chat communications. He recorded images of the minor during some of the sessions. The investigation revealed that Hinkley possessed a hard drive that contained images of child pornography including some he had collected using a peer-to-peer network. Some were sexually explicit images of prepubescent children under the age of 12.

These images document victims’ exploitation and abuse, and they suffer re-victimization each time the images are viewed.

If you have an emergency that requires an immediate law enforcement response, call 911 or contact your local police or sheriff’s department.
