Justice For Them

An Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force investigation led by Kokomo police netted the arrest of a 29-year-old Kokomo woman.

The investigation, which was in partnership with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the FBI, began in November of 2021.

Investigators obtained a search warrant nearly six months later for a home on N. Apperson Way.

Based on that evidence, police arrested Catagan Monroe Johnson, 29. She was charged with possession of child pornography.

Police say they found evidence of child pornography on digital devices that were recovered from the residence.

* In fiscal year 2020, 1,023 child pornography convictions were reported to the Sentencing Commission.  This number shows a marked decrease in child pornography offenses over the last 5 years.  In 2016, the Sentencing Commission reported over 1,500 child pornography cases in the United States.  That number has dropped each following year resulting in a 36% drop in child pornography convictions from 2016-2020.
