Special to The Sun

OKLA. CITY — A federal grand jury has indicted an Edmond man, 28, accusing him of allegedly transporting, receiving and possessing child pornography, according to court records.

On Wednesday, U.S. Attorney Sanford Coats, Western District of Oklahoma released the indictment, returned by a federal grand jury sitting in Oklahoma City.

The grand jury alleges that between Dec. 10, 2011, and May 18, 2012, the defendant knowingly transported images of child pornography. The indictment contains no details about what allegedly transpired.

The defendant’s attorney, Gary James, did not reply to a message seeking comment.

If convicted on count 1, transportation of child pornography, the defendant, Jory Michael Nance, faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine or both. If convicted on count two, receipt of child pornography, the defendant faces up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine or both. If convicted on count three, possession of child pornography, the defendant faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine or both.

A warrant was to be issued, according to court records.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
