Hulbert man pleads not guilty to child pornography; prosecutors cite more than 100 articles | News

A Hulbert man who was allegedly in possession of at least 100 separate items depicting child pornography recently pleaded not guilty to the crime in Cherokee County District Court.

A felony charge of aggravated possession of child pornography was filed March 17, 2023 against 33-year-old Maxx Douglas McReynolds.

He made his first appearance on April 4, when he was posted on $100,000 bond.

According to court documents, between Jan. 1, 2022 and Nov. 26, 2022, McReynolds possessed, allegedly aware of the content, 100 or more separate items depicting child pornography on a Kindle Fire, an Android tablet.

The Kindle Fire allegedly belonged to McReynolds’ son, and the defendant used it as a means of communication, according to the probable cause affidavit.

According to reports, authorities discovered that the device contained approximately 69 images of “prepubescent women in sexual situations with adult men,” upon first inspection.

Some of the images would also have depicted prepubescent women performing sex acts on adult men, as well as having sex with adult men.

According to the affidavit, 203 images depicting child sexual abuse material were uploaded to the device between May 20, 2022 and November 26, 2022.

McReynolds is due in court at 10 a.m. on June 21, 2023, with Special District Judge Gary Huggins presiding.

First Assistant District Attorney Eric Jordan is listed as representing the state.
