An Edmond man was charged on Thursday with production and possession of child pornography.

According to authorities, Carlos Alexander Davila, 23, contacted a 14-year-old Florida girl in March, 2016 through Facebook, after seeing her post a comment that her friend had committed suicide.  They began communicating via Facebook and later by texting and the smartphone application, Kik. 

Davila reportedly told the girl that he was studying to become a psychologist, and he would help her deal with her friend’s suicide. Eventually, Davila asked the girl for nude photos in exchange for his emotional support.  The girl told Davila that she was only 14, but he said it did not matter, according to authorities. The girl eventually sent Davila nude images of herself.

According to court records, the girl reported that Davila became very possessive of her, and when she tried to end their online relationship, he threatened to post online the nude images she had sent him.  According to text messages described in court records, the girl begged Davila to delete her images, but he said he would "keep every single pic and video" and would "leak everything" about her "to everyone," especially his "hungry friends in need of fresh meat."

Davila allegedly texted the girl, saying, "The more you ignore me the more I’ll expose you without a care in the world."  Authorities said he texted her that if she did not respond to him in five minutes, he would post a picture she had sent him, alongside a request that listed her contact information and asked for pictures of men’s penises. 

Davila allegedly used a phone-number-spoofing app to send the girl text messages to give her the impression that her images had in fact been posted online and that people were contacting her.

According to court records, when Edmond police officers examined Davila’s electronic devices, they found child pornography depicting the Florida girl, as well as other images of child pornography.

If convicted of producing child pornography, Davila faces a minimum of 15 and a maximum of 30 years in prison, as well as supervised release of five years to life.

This case is being investigated by the Hillsborough County (Florida) Sheriff’s Department and the Edmond Police Department.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Brandon Hale.
