The charges stem from an investigation conducted by the Bethalto Police Department, after they received a cyber tip from the National Center for Missing Exploited Children (NCMEC) that linked possible child pornography with an address in the Village of Bethalto, which was linked to Duncan.

Duncan was taken into custody during the search warrant execution and transported to the Madison County Jail, where he was held pending a formal presentation of facts to Madison County State’s Attorney Thomas Haine’s Office.

A criminal information and warrant application was prepared by the state’s attorney’s office that detailed the five counts charged, which are associated with the dissemination of Child Pornography. The Honorable Judge Ronald Slemer issued the warrant/information setting Duncan’s bond at $250,000.00. Copies of the Criminal Information are attached to this post as images.
