On November 24th Thomas M. Franks, age 55 of Plainfield, will be faced with charges of possession and distributing child pornography. Franks is a former Boy Scout Leader and was found with over 230 images of child pornography after Metro Police Detectives performed a search of his residence. Earlier that same month detectives received tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that images depicting child pornography were being uploaded from a computer at Frank’s residence. Currently Frank is being held in the custody of the U.S. Marshals and could face 20 years behind bars.
