Five area men have been arrested in a child pornography investigation by the Texas Attorney General’s Child Exploitation Unit, Attorney General Ken Paxton announced Friday.

The arrests were made between Oct. 23 and Thursday after an investigation that started with tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that the five men had uploaded child pornography to internet accounts, social media apps or internet search engines, Paxton said.

Damon Todd Turner, 52, of College Station, was arrested on Oct. 23 on a warrant charging one count of possession of child pornography. He was taken to the Brazos County Jail.

Justin Howard Everett, 37, of College Station, was arrested Oct. 24 on one count of promotion of child pornography. He was taken to the Brazos County Jail.

Enoch Santo Rivera, 35, of Bedias, was arrested on Tuesday on five counts of possession of child pornography. He was taken to the Grimes County Jail.

Jason Dominguez, 29, of College Station, was arrested on Wednesday on three counts of Possession of Child Pornography. He was taken to the Brazos County Jail.

Carl David Baxter, 43, of College Station, was arrested on Thursday on four counts of possession of child pornography. He was taken to the Brazos County Jail.

“I commend the hard-working investigators from my office’s Child Exploitation Unit for stopping these child-predators from potentially harming more innocent children,” Paxton said.

“This grotesque behavior is clearly rampant across the country and it serves as a reminder that we, as a community, must continue to protect the vulnerable from exploitation.”

Investigators seized a number of digital devices, which the office’s Digital Forensics Unit will inspect.
