An Alabama youth sports coach was arrested this week, charged with sharing videos of young children engaged in sex acts, police say.
Jamie Paul Hutto, a 39-year-old Pelham youth sports volunteer coach, was arrested after allegedly sharing video files depicting children between the approximate age of 18 months through 9 years old engaged in sexual acts.
The Pelham Police Department was recently made aware of alleged wrongdoing by a Pelham resident.
The Criminal Investigations Division, with assistance of state and federal agencies, immediately began looking into the complaint.
Detectives obtained an arrest warrant and arrested Hutto on Wednesday, May 24.
Hutto has been charged with 5 counts of Possession of Child Pornography and 5 counts of Dissemination of Child Pornography.
He is currently held in the Shelby County Jail on a $300,000 bond.
In late December 2022, Hutto allegedly knowingly disseminated and displayed obscene matter depicting persons under 17 years of age engaged in sexual conduct.
He also allegedly shared a number of files on a file sharing network depicting children between the age of 18 months through 9 years old engaged in sexual acts.
