Description: Knoxville, Tennessee criminal law lawyer represented Defendant charged with attempted production of child pornography.

David Morrow, age 51, of Maryville, Tennessee, a former football coach at Heritage High School, pleaded guilty to one count of attempted production of child pornography, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 2251(a) and (e). Following his incarceration, Morrow will be on supervised release for 12 years and will be required to comply with special sex offender conditions. In addition, Morrow will be required to register with the state sex offender registry in whatever state in which he resides.

As set forth in the plea agreement filed with the court, Morrow used a social media platform to engage in conversations with an individual he believed to be a 12-year-old girl but who was actually an undercover federal agent. Morrow, despite knowing the victim’s age, repeatedly asked her to take sexually explicit photographs of herself for him to view, and he sent her several photographs of himself, including one displaying his genitalia.

This prosecution was the result of an investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
