Michael E. Alcorn, 48, of Orchard Street in Leitchfield, was recently indicted in Grayson County Circuit Court on 57 counts of distribution of a matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor and one charge of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor.
Alcorn was originally charged with 20 counts of distribution of child pornography after Kentucky State Police searched his home on January 30. Since that time, he has been charged with an additional 37 counts of the crime.
Each incidence of this crime is alleged to have occurred between January 23 and 29, 2013, with the charge of possession of matter portraying a sexual performance by a minor allegedly occurring on January 30.
Alcorn is currently being held at the Grayson County Detention Center on a $50,000 cash bond, which was increased from the $25,000 bond originally set for him.
Due to the offensive nature of his alleged crimes, he is not permitted to have any contact or communication with anyone under 18 years of age and must stay at least 500 feet away from any minor. He is not allowed to have access to a computer or any other electronic device capable of accessing the internet or to possess any materials depicting images of a minor.
