OKLAHOMA CITY – Attorney General Mike Hunter has filed three felony charges against an Ardmore man after an undercover investigation into the sharing of child pornography.

The result of the investigation led authorities to Lance Gilley, 38, who has been charged with one count of distribution of child pornography, one count of possession of child pornography and one count of violating the state’s computer crimes act.

“Crimes against children are intolerable and my office is committed to doing all we can to stop this horrific crime,”  Hunter said. “I applaud the work and the commitment to collaboration between state, federal and local law enforcement agencies to bring these charges and hold this individual accountable. Our continued work together is vital to keeping Oklahomans safe.”

The investigation was undertaken earlier this year by the Attorney General’s Office, the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation, the Office of Homeland Security and the Carter County Sheriff’s Office.

If convicted, Gilley faces prison time, fines and fees.
