Carver man arrested for producing child porn 10 Nov 11

A 48-year-old Carver man was indicted in federal court last month for producing images of child pornography.

Randy Davies Anderson has been charged with one count of production of child pornography. The indictment alleges that in January 2011, Anderson induced and coerced a minor female child to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing visual depictions of that conduct.

According to a Carver County criminal complaint, authorities learned about Anderson in July 2011, during another child pornography investigation. He was arrested on Oct. 7 and remains in custody.

If convicted, Anderson faces a potential maximum penalty of 30 years in prison, with a mandatory minimum penalty of 15 years.
