Bobby Allen Thorp age 47 of Gate City Indicted

In today's local news, the Scott County Commonwealth's Attorney Dan Fellhauer stated that Bobby Allen Thorp age 47 of Gate City was investigated following a tip gathered from the Internet Crimes Against Children data system. In cooperation with numerous law enforcement agencies an investigation was immediately launched. Among those agencies participating in the investigation were the Scott County Sheriff's Office and the Gate City Police Deparment.
Additionally Fellhauer stated that multiple interviews took place and search warrants were executed on both Thorp's Google and Facebook accounts, while his cell phone, laptop and an additional computer were seized by authorities.
It appears so far that no local children have been identified in any of the pornographic images, although when these types of images are made, children are violated sexually and they're repeatedly victimized by the trading of their image and online viewing.
Officials ask that anyone who think they may have been contacted or solicited by Thorp to contact the Scott County Sheriff's Office right away. Some of the online aliases reportedly used by Thorp include, "PLOWB", "SANDMANBT29", "PLOWBOYBT71", "COUNTRYBOYBT71" and "BOBBYTHARP".
Having already been indicted previously this month on a single county of Trading Child Pornagraphy as the price for admittance into a group, four counts of Distributing Child Pornagraphyy, four counts of Receiving Child Pornography and one count of Solicitation, Thorp currently faces a maximum of 65 years in prison. However with the evidence still being processed it could result in even more charges against Thorp being filed.
