Attorney General Jim Hood announced that 20-year-old Shyheam Griffin is behind bars for allegedly creating, distributing, and downloading child pornography.

Griffin was arrested at his Picayune home by investigators with the AG’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and booked in the Picayune Police Department. He was charged with three counts of child exploitation—one for possession of child pornography, one for distribution of child pornography, and one for production of child pornography. He was also charged with two counts of child molestation, and three counts of child neglect.

If convicted on the exploitation and molestation charges, Griffin faces up to 180 years in prison. The misdemeanor child neglect charges will be prosecuted by the district attorney.
