FARMINGTON, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A 30-year-old Farmington man is accused of sexual trafficking and possession of child pornography.

James L. Rodgers was found inside his home on North Carleton Street on Oct. 9. After making initial contact with the 30-year-old, investigators said they obtained a search warrant for the home.

While executing the search warrant, Rodgers was allegedly found in possession of computer equipment that contained child pornography. The equipment and child pornography were seized by investigators, who then said the information indicated Rodgers had been in contact with more than one child. Investigators said Rodgers contacted the children over the internet and the interactions were sexual in nature.

Rodgers was arrested and taken to the St. Francois County Jail. He has been charged with one count of sexual trafficking of a child first degree and one count of sexual trafficking of a child second degree. His bond was set at $500,000.
