SEMINOLE, Okla. – Today, agents from the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation (OSBI) Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit arrested 50-year-old Daniel Raymond Sharp on multiple child pornography charges.

The case was assigned to the OSBI ICAC Unit after the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) forwarded a cyber tip they received from an Email Service Provider to the OSBI. The tip referenced an email user sending child exploitation material between September and October of this year. The images were of a prepubescent naked female child in several sexually explicit poses. There were also several sexually explicit videos of a naked female child.

Today, OSBI ICAC Agents, with assistance from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol (OHP) Tactical Team and members of the ICAC Task Force including the Tulsa Police Department and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, executed a search warrant at a residence on EW 1304 Road in Wewoka, Okla., where Sharp lives. The evidence that was collected during the execution of that warrant led to Sharp’s arrest this morning.

Sharp is charged with Possession and Distribution of Child Pornography and Violation of the Oklahoma Computer Crimes Act. He is currently in the Seminole County Jail and is being held on a $200,000 bond.

If you suspect a child is being sexually exploited, contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children immediately at 1-800-THE-LOST or www.cybertipline.com. You can also contact the OSBI Internet Crimes Against Children (ICAC) Unit at (800) 522-8017 or [email protected]
