Mississippi News: Laurel Woman, Kristina Lee Arrested for Possessing Child Pornography

JACKSON, MS – A 35-year-old woman was arrested at her Laurel home Wednesday on one count of child exploitation for possession of child pornography, announced Attorney General Jim Hood.

Kristina Lee was arrested by the AG’s Cyber Crime Unit after an investigation into her suspicious online activity. She was booked into the Jones County Adult Correctional Facility.

If convicted, Lee faces up to 40 years in prison. A charge is merely an accusation, and a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.

This case was investigated by the Mississippi Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task and will be prosecuted by Special Assistant Attorney General Brandon Ogburn.
