Man held on 21 battery, child porn counts

SoVaNow.com / March 25, 2013
A former South Boston man was arrested Wednesday by the Danville Police Department and charged with 21 sex-related crimes after a Halifax County grand jury returned indictments in the case back on March 11.

Ticey Lee Thompson, 31, now living in Danville, faces charges of aggravated sexual battery and production of child pornography.

According to South Boston Detective R. E. Redd, Thompson was indicted on six counts of aggravated sexual battery and 15 counts of production of child pornography, with 14 of the 15 charges being a second or subsequent offense involving children under 15 years old.

The charges stem from crimes that allegedly occurred between Jan. 1, 2006 and Oct. 7, 2010. The indictments by the grand jury came after a lengthy investigation carried out by the South Boston Police Department, the Southern Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, and the Danville Police Department.

Thompson currently is being held without bond in the Danville City Jail.
