FRANKFORT, KY. (WTVQ) – A 26-year-old Richmond man has been indicted by a Madison County grand jury on nearly 30 counts of alleged sex crimes.
Dylan Minch was arrested in October by cyber investigators from the office of Attorney General Andy Beshear.
Cyber investigators secured a search warrant of Minch’s home where they recovered several electronic devices that contained graphic media files of children engaged in sexual acts.
Minch was indicted Jan. 17 on 20 counts of possession of child pornography, one count of first-degree sexual abuse, and eight counts of the use of a minor under 16 years of age in a sex performance.
Attorney General Andy Beshear says, while Minch was initially charged with the possession of child pornography images at the time of his arrest, the grand jury was presented forensic evidence by cyber investigators’ examination of Minch’s devices that revealed images of Minch engaging in acts that investigators felt warranted the additional sex crime charges.
Minch is currently housed in the Madison County Detention on a $50,000 cash bond.
