The United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District Pennsylvania announced the indictment today by a federal grand jury in Harrisburg of Lebanon City man for child pornography offenses.
According to United States Attorney Peter J. Smith, Howard D. Davis, age 57, is charged with allegedly enticing a fourteen-year-old to engage in sexually explicit activity and requesting that these sexual images be sent through the internet.
The fourteen-year-old was, in reality, an undercover officer with the Nebraska State Police. A subsequent search warrant executed at Davis’s address uncovered a computer with alleged child pornography which Davis distributed to others over the internet.
The case was investigated by the United States Postal Inspectors in conjunction with the Nebraska State Police and the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. Prosecution is assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Michael A. Consiglio.
