Two Arrested On Child Porn Charges In Durant

Posted:

DURANT, OK -- Police say undercover officers with an OSBI task force helped them make a pair of child pornography arrests this week. The two cases are unrelated, but officers say both suspects face the same charges.

Richard Harmon, 64, was arrested at his home Wednesday after police say he was caught sharing child porn with an officer on the computer.

Last Thursday, police arrested Shannon Hutcherson, 22, and say they seized several computers from his house in the 900 block of Alabama.

"We served a search warrant and retrieved his computer and other media devices. He was arrested shortly thereafter and admitted to having it on his computer," says Durant police Det. Drew Hale.

Both men face charges of possession and distribution of child pornography. According to the Oklahoma sex offender registry, Harmon was convicted of making indecent proposals to a child in 2008.
