What appears to be a major child pornography distribution operation has been busted in southwest Logan. A Cache County Sheriff’s Office press release states that 47-year old Douglas S. Bessinger of Logan is in the Cache County Jail without bail on 40 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor. In March the sheriff’s office Internet Crimes Against Children task force received information from an out-of-state informant that Bessinger was distributing child pornography. An investigation was launched and a warrant obtained for Bessinger’s residence. The press release states documents, cameras and computers were seized. It also states that the case is still active and the charges against Bessigner may change as the case evolves. The FBI has joined in the investigation. Lt. Matt Bilodeau says this is one of the most severe cases of child pornography in recent memory, and that officials are very interested in talking with possible victims that may have had contact with Bessinger. If you have information regarding this case, you’re encouraged to call the sheriff’s office at 755-1000, and ask for an investigation.
