Ponca City, Oklahoma – The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation said they arrested a volunteer youth leader from a Ponca City church Tuesday for crimes associated with the production and distribution of child pornography.

They say they arrested Joel David Bolay, 30, at his home in the 3300 block of Kingston Road in Ponca City.

OSBI said they received a cyber-tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that someone had distributed nude images of a minor female child over the Internet.

They say OSBI and Ponca City Police worked together to identify the child on Friday and continued to work over the weekend to identify the suspect.

On Tuesday, an affidavit was given to the Kay County District Attorney, reports say, who then filed charges against Bolay for producing child pornography, distributing child pornography and lewd/indecent acts with a child under the age of 16.

Bolay was booked into the Kay County Jail and is being held on a $50,000 bond.

Reports say he volunteered as a youth leader at the Foursquare Gospel Church and that the child victim was not a member of the church.
