A Kentucky man was arrested Sunday on child exploitation charges in Alabama, announced U.S. Attorney Prim F. Escalona and Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent in Carlton L. Peeples.

A four-count indictment filed in the U.S. District Court charges Aden Willis Yeager, 21, of Louisville, Kentucky, with one count of production of child pornography, one count of coercion and enticement of a minor, one count of transportation of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography arising out of events that occurred between April 2020 and October 2020 in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama.

“Summer is here, and children will have an increased online presence. I encourage parents to have open and ongoing conversations about safe and appropriate online behavior,” U.S. Attorney Escalona said. “My office, in collaboration with our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners, will continue in our efforts to protect our most vulnerable victims – our children.”
