Man jailed in child porn case

Christopher Eugene Barton, 35, was being held in the Dougherty County Jail on Dec. 13 on child pornography charge. (Dec. 13, 2012)

ALBANY, Ga. -- Acting on information from a federal agency, Dougherty County Sheriff's Deputies raided a 3600 Newton Road residence and arrested a man on possession of child pornography Dec. 5, said Capt. Craig Dodd.

Christopher Eugene Barton, 35, remained in Dougherty County Jail at 5 p.m. Thursday in lieu if $1,000 bail, stated the jail's automated answering system. He is also charged with possession of firearms by a felon, it added.

Executing a search warrant, deputies picked Barton up at his residence, which he shares with 36-year-old Ila Evangeline Lewis, Dodd said. Both were charged with misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce marijuana and Lewis was not in jail, He added.

Lewis' four, under-16-year-old children were also at the home, Dodd added. All the children were unrelated to Barton and left in the care of Lewis, he said.

Deputies confiscated three pistols, a Taurus .45-caliber pistol, a Smith and Wesson .38-caliber handgun, a Glock .40-caliber and a rifle, an AK-47, during the raid, Dodd said.

Lewis called The Albany Herald and said Dodd had much of the information wrong. She said she didn't know Barton, her fiance, downloaded child porn to watch.

"I don't know if he did or not. If he did, then there is punishment for him," Lewis said. "But I want help for him with this. jail doesn't rehabilitate people. I want him to get help."

All but one of the guns, including the AK-47, were legally registered to her, Lewis said. The AK-47 wasn't an automatic version. She bought it because it was cheaper than other hunting rifles, she added.

"His youngest daughter is 5," Lewis said. "She misses him so much, she asks, 'Where is my daddy' every hour."

Lewis said she is seeking an attorney to defend Barton. She doesn't believe Barton is a pedophile just because he might have viewed child porn.

"He comes from a broken home and he needs help," Lewis said. "I want to get him help and then go back to work, have the kids in school and do what I have been doing, being an upstanding member of the community."

Dodd said the community is better off with Barton out of circulation. He said he believes men who watch child porn become or at least "lean toward" pedophilia.

"He (Barton) said he had a fascination with it," Dodd said, "even though he knew it was wrong."

Computer forensic technicians continue to examine the electronics confiscated.

And that makes you happy doesn't it. I'd rather this be a perfect world but it isn't. But if I must choose I'd rather you shoot me that molest my child. Then I'd have to kill you.

VSU 1 year, 4 months ago

If I shot you, you would be dead, so how could you kill me? At least a person molested is still alive and can move on with their life, a person shot and killed doesn't have that second chance. Grant it, i certainly don't condone child molestation and that child might be scarred for life pending how strong mentally they are, but still they have that second chance.

Once again coachjohnson shows his ignorance by agreeing with himself. You're a sad lonely person.

He had a previous conviction for child molestation in Cali according to TV news. Anyone who disrupts the innocence of children should have a village millstone tied around his neck and dropped into the deepest part of the sea. That is not an exact quote, but the essence. Molesters are broke. They cannot be rehabilitated. That has been proven over and over by repeat offenses. The children are damaged for life. They don't get another chance. They should be the center of our concern, not the pervert. Drop him Danno!

AuntieDee 1 year, 4 months ago

Waitforit...you are so right or even better, Christopher is probably related to to both of them.

Red Eric, I couldn't agree with you more.

I think you are related to coachjohnson and waitforit. So close in fact that all you have to do is change your user name.

We may be related. I'll check our bloodline and get back to you. lol

Just another example of the "give me society"... I wonder how they paid for those guns and computers...maybe Sister and the rest of her goons can tie this one back to DCSS and the President........

OK slimeballs let's play your ignorant, twisted, racially biased and evil game. As for this man, he should pay the penalty for his crimes. But now let me respond like you do, slimeballs AuntieDee, TRUTH, waitforit, cj42, bsrn, etc etc. How to tie it back to DCSS? Here you go:

"Without any eyewitnesses to the crimes, how do you know when and how those pictures got on his computer? This is a witch hunt from those with a hidden agenda! Don't worry, Mr. Barton, no weapon formed against you shall prosper! God will deal with your accusers! When all this is over you can give God All The Glory!!"

Do you think if Mr. Barton shows up with his attorney, doesn't say a mumbling word but lets his attorney do all the talking and denying as the DCSS cheaters did, that he should get off totally scott-friggin'-FREE? I know, right?

Have a nice day, slimeballs, and Merry Christmas!!

You have the nerve to bring God into this? Stand back ya'll lightning is about to strike this hypocrite.

This one comment to help you with your reading comprehension. My comments in quote marks "...." are the exact things said by the SH*T For Brains supporters of the DCSS cheating teachers on this Herald comment site. So I just repeated a few related to this individual to show you how utterly stupid they are in either case, cheating young children or molesting them. Both wrong. Merry Christmas!

Just like you to take the side of the white child molestering pervert who has already been found guilty of this crime in another state. Yet, you have already convicted all the vious (who you believe to be black) on the jail list who have not yet gone to court. Thank you for revealing your true character. Talk about sleazy slimeball!

Wasn't that Boctavous Antwon Clyde who turned himself into the police for shooting that black male just 2 days ago? Don't hate Sister for telling it like it is. Okay it wasn't an vious, but the same point Sister Ruby said was put across.

0

AuntieDee 1 year, 4 months ago

It may have been. I don't know him. Thank God he turned himself in. Too bad your friend Chris didn't turn himself in. No telling how many times he's molested that stupid woman's children.

0

VSU 1 year, 4 months ago

He didn't touch those children, but your friend Boctavous touched that black dude with a bullet. He turned himself in because he knew he would get caught anyway.

hmmmmmm.....and your friend in Conn touched innocent little kids.........

VSU 1 year, 4 months ago

You're barking up the wrong tree dogg, which you usually do and think you have all the answers and don't even understand the questions. That guy in connecticut has nothing to do with this story and was stupid and ignorant for you to even bring it up, shows you have no respect or remorse for those victims, what a cuss you are, but like I said your friend and Auntie Dee's friend Boctavous shot that black man in East Albany. you probably know him, he is one of your Bro's. I heard y'all hang out together.

My comment to Auntie Dee was in reference to her above comment about people with names ending in ivous committing crimes, but I didn't expect you to be smart enough to figure that out and I was right.

The bail for this man is WAY too low....Yeah I know innocent until proven guiltym but it is still too low for the charges. And I agree with Ms. Lewis that jail will not cure this man, but she is delusional in thinking that this man can be fixed and remain with her, and her children. And she should be more worried about the kids in that household, than fixing him. I am just hoping they caught this man before the child porn turned into abuse against those children. If he didn't it was only a matter of time....

And before I am chastised by anyone...I have had personal experience enough to know of what I am saying...

Right and you will also enjoy my comment on today's squawk of the day. Your response is very weak, though. Maybe you should have worked on it a little longer.

I'm done commenting about this one other than to say that I hope for justice in this case. Whatever is JUST, based on his guilt.

70% of all convicted child molesters are white. This story doesn't surprise me. Typical crime for his kind. No doubt he probably was molested as a child because that's how those people live. It's passed down from generation to generation. It's really sad... but a learned behavior which they think is o.k.

0

Sister_Ruby 1 year, 4 months ago

You do know that Whites comprise 85% of the population of this country? That puts them as under-represented if it's 70%. But of course I repudiate it no matter who is guilty.

0

FryarTuk 1 year, 4 months ago

Actually non-Hispanic whites comprise only 64%of the US population. A convicted child molester found with guns, children & porn should not be bond able & certainly not for less than 100K. Jail will help this SOB and children a lot. The only known treatment is the ECT in Jackson.

I have always been curious about what pleasure men get out of looking at child pornography. I just cannot imagine what the fascination is for them. It sickens me to think that anyone would look at it let alone make it.

Jerry Sandusky ran that number up for white men. He and his wife actually set up a charity organization and adopted as well. Seriously?? Those two parent white homes is where it starts

tiredofit 1 year, 4 months ago

70% well at least white people report it, it is normal for your kind(waitforit) just another day in the hood, we all need to protect our children from any harm, but race seems to come into every comment in this forum it's becoming a sick world.

Yep and you just participated in it's sadness. Good luck with that

Besides the majority of y'all commit suicide before facing charges which more than likely accounts for your low incarceration numbers. So you see your race is not without crime...in fact your race has alot of one particular thing....STUPIDITY

0

VSU 1 year, 4 months ago

Stupidity indeed, I guarantee you white students get better grades than the black students, you have a higher school dropout rate among blacks than whites, a lot due to babies having babies, or joining some stupid gang, and in some cases teachers have to cheat to even get the black students to pass. A lot of blacks don't even know who there daddy is, it might even be uncle leroy. And child molestation is not an all white crime, there have been numerous black men arrested and convicted of child molestation, even within their own family. so the black race has a lot of one particular thing....STUPIDITY.

That black football player for the Kansas City Chiefs Jovan Belcher killed himself after killing his girlfriend before police could catch up with him. Using your logic, I guess we can assume he was doing his part to help keep the number of black people incarerated down.

Yeah yeah yeah. Do us all a favor and go kill yourself

I was thinking the same thing, how our society would be a better place if you hung yourself. I have some rope you can borrow.

Interesting statistic regarding child molesters being WHITE. I have sat on three juries in the last few years that involved three BLACK men tried and convicted of molesting children. So your point regarding race(always a race issue with Coach Johnson (and your many other alias that you use) is MOOT. Just where did you obtain this statistic? I bet you made it up. Waiting for you to give ALL OF US this statistical information from a reputable source or sources.

I don't know if I am allowed to say this or not, or even know if anyone has said it or not, but since this began someone else was arrested on charges of child pornography and I want to say this one thing......does anyone else ever wonder why the men arrested for that or for molestation are always so unattractive? Maybe that was a bad thing to say, but it is just was something some friends and I were commenting on today...we wondered why they seemed to be such unattractive men. Maybe we are too picky and would appear to be a bunch of cows to them, who knows..but we were wondering.
