Franklin Man Faces Federal Exploitation Charges

A Franklin man is indicted on multiple federal charges including child exploitation.

NASHVILLE – United States Attorney Henry C. Leventis announced that Camilo Campos-Hurtado, a 63-year-old man from Franklin, Tennessee, has been indicted on several federal criminal charges. The charges stem from the discovery of child pornography and fraudulent immigration documents during the execution of multiple search warrants by law enforcement officers.

The federal grand jury returned the indictment against Campos-Hurtado, charging him with four counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, one count of receiving visual depictions of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct, one count of using or possessing fraudulent immigration documents, and one count of possessing an identification document or authentication feature which was stolen or produced without lawful authority.

Campos-Hurtado is facing a mandatory minimum sentence of fifteen years and could be sentenced to life in federal prison if convicted on these charges.

The investigation leading to the indictment was conducted by the Department of Homeland Security and the Franklin Police Department. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Monica R. Morrison and Kathryn Risinger are handling the prosecution of the case.

Authorities are urging anyone who believes they may be a victim or has any information related to the alleged conduct to contact the Franklin Police Department at (615) 550-6829 or the Department of Homeland Security at (866) 347-2423.

It is important to note that an indictment is simply an allegation and not proof of guilt. Under the law, Campos-Hurtado is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
