Escambia Sex Offender Arrested On Federal Child Porn Charges

August 30, 2013

An Escambia County registered sex offender has been arrested on federal child pornography charges.

Clay Calhoun Keys,  52, was charged with federal distribution of child pornography, the possession of child pornography and the possession of ammunition by a convicted felon.  Keys made his initial appearance in federal court Thursday morning.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched by the Department of Justice in May 2006 to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by United States Attorneys’ Offices and the Criminal Division’s Child  Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.

Keys was taken into custody on an arrest warrant issued by United States Magistrate Judge Charles J. Kahn, Jr. The  arrest was announced by Pamela C. Marsh, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Florida, and  results from an investigation conducted by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) , Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Pensacola Police Department.
