Child porn case could go to trial today

The case against a former White County Sheriff’s Office deputy could go to a federal trial today in a Gainesville courthouse, nearly a year after Christopher Davis was charged with creation and possession of child pornography.

Davis was working as a deputy at the White County courthouse before he was arrested in August 2011.

The Dahlonega man has pleaded not guilty.

Jury selection was expected to last through Monday in U.S. District Judge William C. O’Kelley’s courtroom.

In a court affidavit, David Westall, special agent for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, alleges that Davis “used a minor to engage in sexually explicit conduct for the purpose of producing a visual depiction of such conduct by means of a Nikon camera, that camera having been mailed, transported and shipped in interstate and foreign commerce.”
