Hulbert man pleads not guilty to child pornography charge

A Hulbert man who was charged with aggravated possession of child pornography pleaded not guilty.

Maxx Douglas McReynolds appeared in district court for his initial appearance this week for charges of possession of child pornography. According to a probable cause affidavit, McReynolds possessed approximately 203 images of child sexual abuse material on a Kindle Fire.

On Nov. 26, 2022, Cherokee County Sheriff Sgt. Ryan Robison was contacted by Hulbert Police Chief Brandon Quimby after a woman turned over the Kindle device.

"Upon visually searching the gallery files of the Kindle, approximately 69 images of CSAM could be located," the affidavit stated.

Investigators obtained a search warrant for a cell phone McReynolds had possession of on Nov. 30, 2022, however they weren't able to locate him. Robison conducted a physical extraction of the file system on the Kindle device where 203 images were located.

"All images were downloaded between May 20, 2022 and Nov. 26, 2022. The extraction was made into a report with all images tagged as evidence," the affidavit stated.

A warrant was issued for the arrest of McReynolds on March 17 and he appeared in court Tuesday, April 4, when he received a $100,000 bond. McReynolds pleaded not guilty and is slated to appear before Special District Judge Gary Huggins for a felony sounding docket on May 24.
