A Kingman man faces 15 felony charges alleging he sent pornographic images and sexually-explicit messages to a 15-year-old girl.

Brian Ashley Beckham, 36, was arrested Tuesday afternoon following a Mohave County Sheriff's Office investigation that began Dec. 11.

Detectives responded that day to Lee Williams High School, where the alleged victim told school officials that Beckham made sexual advances for more than a year.

He allegedly sent her pornographic images he culled from the Internet to her cell phone, as well as text messages asking the girl for sexual favors, according to Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Trish Carter.

The victim told detectives the crimes have occurred over a 14-month period beginning in October 2012.

Carter in an email said detectives confirmed the images and text messages were sent from Beckham's phone to the girl's phone. He was arrested after an interview was conducted at the Sheriff's Office at about noon on Christmas Eve.

Beckham denies any involvement, said Carter.

He faces five class 2 felony counts of aggravated luring of a minor for sexual exploitation, five class 3 felony counts of luring a minor for sexual exploitation and five class 4 felony counts of furnishing harmful material to a minor.

Banning DOES work.... if its not there for people to access... now IS it???

All it takes is removing the porn related websites and ads and having the webmasters/owners arrested or just blocking it altogether like alot of other countries do. They have alot of things blocked by the ISP in that country and the ISP's are made to block it by that country's laws.

So lets ban....

cars- no more drunk driving
alcohol- no more domestic violence
religion- no more Holy Wars
banks- no more bank robberies

playgrounds- no more places for pedophiles to hang out

swimming-no more drownings

alcohol/drugs- oh we tried that

Read a history book....banning doesn't work...

I could go on for days...but you get my point. Banning doesn't work....

@ what the

You want the government to decide what we can and cannot look at.

If the government banning something worked the "war on drugs" would have been won years ago

What a great design. Keep the local leaders and law-enforcement especially Judges. With a capitol J folks. From using the talents against our Federal government. Shift the focus of the people, keep them busy, keep them in slavery. Blink their eyes then we will rule the world. At least the top 1% will benefit.

I agree, it's time for the justice system to quit cuddling these predators and really really punish them! I don't think jail is the answer, maybe public hanging. These predators have gotten to be more and more, jail doesn't cure them, taxpayers just end paying all their living expenses and if they have a family the state ends up taking care of them too!
Maybe they should have to run around with a huge yellow X painted on them.

Just read a story in news where a woman was convicted of putting child porn on her husbands computer in a effort to frame him, fortunate for him he was in another place when the police forensic expert timed the date on hard drive of when it was put on the computer and the wife had no viable other location and both shared the computer, hence he barely missed being falsely arrested, incarcerated! This reminds me of the story of the woman who tried to frame her husband by sending Ricin to President Obama, she almost got away with it, guess forensic experts will determine did this fellow do this or not, then issue will be what to sentence him to!

Maybe it's because the 15 year old didn't say this. Her words are that she never recieved anything like this from him in any form. She has no problem speaking up and she has before in another situation. I have her back when she can swear on her uncle's grave that what she tells me is the truth. Maybe if those who think they are or were close enough to know it all, had spent true valuable time with her, then they can say how things really are. As of right now, the ones anyone is hurting is the kids. They still have to attend school and listen to thier peers repeat what they only hear thier parents speak.

I think if the government would just shut down all the porn sites and stuff then there wouldnt be these types of problems on citizens. Just think, alot of other countries have alot of internet stuff blocked.

As a parent and now grandparent of 2. I have to ask why did it take the 15 year old so long to bring this to someone's notice? As for the suspect if found guilty it is time sexual predators are given tougher sentences. They are not curable and more than 90% will re-offend stop putting our children at risk and throw away the key for sex offenders.

It's a shame he didn't send her a picture of himself. He'd be a free man right now.
