Corey Bevins

WHITE EARTH -- A White Earth man was charged in federal court Tuesday with producing, receiving and possessing child pornography.

Corey Victor Bevins, 37, was charged with three counts of production of child pornography, five counts of receipt of child pornography and one count of possession of child pornography, according to a release issued by the U.S. Attorney's Office.

In 2012, Bevins induced a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing videos on three occasions, according to the release. The indictment against Bevins alleges between May 2012 and January 2013, he knowingly received video files depicting a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Bevins was found to be in possession of multiple video files containing child pornography, the release said.

If convicted, Bevins faces a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison on each production count, 20 years on each receipt count and 10 years on the possession count. Bevins is presently being held in the Beltrami County Jail.
