Fillmore County Court Report

Posted in Court

On December 22, 2011, Scott Brian Sefton, 40, of Preston appeared before Judge Robert Benson at the Fillmore County Courthouse. Sefton was charged with eight counts of possession of child pornographic work, which has a maximum penalty of five years in jail and a $5,000 fine.

In November, there was an undercover file sharing investigation done by the Internet Crimes Against Children task force. They discovered files of child pornography that were being downloaded, and traced the Internet Protocol (IP) address to Sefton's home in Preston.

Police confiscated Sefton's computer, which allegedly has several images and videos of child pornography on it. Sefton paid $3,000 in conditional bail. He must not enter any stores that sell pornographic materials, have no Internet, and no contact with minors except for at work. His next court appearance will be January 3, 2012.
