Brian McMackin Arrested on Multiple Child Porn Charges
A Milan man pleaded not guilty in federal court to multiple child pornography charges Wednesday, according to a spokesman for the FBI.
Brian D. McMackin, 27, appeared in federal court in Memphis on charges of production, distribution, receipt and possession of child pornography, according to Todd McCall, supervisor of the FBI's Jackson office.
McCall said authorities are still looking for children who may have been victims in the case.
"At this point we have been made aware that there are other victims or potential victims, in this case (it's) small children, females," McCall said Wednesday. "In the past 10 years, if Mr. McMackin has had contact with any small children in your home, we probably need to talk with you."
McCall declined to give details on how the pornography was discovered but said the images were "computer based and by other means as well."
McMackin is being held without bond. He was indicted last month as part of an investigation by member agencies of the FBI Memphis Crimes Against Children Task Force.
A report hearing for McMackin is set for July 23 in federal court in Memphis, McCall said.
The various charges carry potential prison sentences ranging from five to 30 years.
Anyone with additional information or who believes they have been a victim is asked to call the Jackson FBI Office at 668-9578.
If after hours, leave a voicemail or call the FBI Memphis Division at 901-747-4300.
