Jesus Leon Christian, 37, of Columbus, unemployed, was charged with two counts of aggravated child molestation and one count of child molestation.

The Task Force received tips from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children regarding child porn possession and distribution. Authorities say the virtual trail led them to center their investigation in Columbus, and ultimately, led to the arrest of the six suspects. 

The GBI says Columbus Police and the Harris County Sheriff’s Department also helped with investigation.
