PRINEVILLE, OR -- A Prineville man has been arrested on multiple counts of encouraging child sexual abuse. Oregon State Police arrested 32-year-old Ryan Babcock after receiving a tip from the Oregon Dept. of Justice Internet Crimes Against Children Team.
Investigators say Babcock had pornographic images of children engaged in sexual activity with adults, then shared the pictures with others through a fictitious email account.
Babcock was lodged at the Crook County Jail, and is charged with encouraging child sexual abuse and possessing material depicting sexually explicit conduct of children.
