Charges: Coon Rapids man paid 12-year-old $100 for naked pics


A 27-year-old Coon Rapids man paid a 12-year-old girl in exchange for taking nude photos of her in November, according to charges filed in Anoka County, WCCO reports.

In all, Daniel Lawrence Kennedy faces 11 felony child pornography charges, the Coon Rapids Herald reports.

According to the charges, Kennedy was caring for the girl during the November incident when she began crying because she did not have the money for a gift she wanted to buy a friend. He offered to pay her $100 if he could take "sexy" naked photos of her in her bedroom, the charges state.

Kennedy also is accused of offering the girl money for photos at a Goodwill store in Coon Rapids in May, the Pioneer Press reports. He admitted to police he sent images to friends via email, the Pioneer Press reports. He declined comment to the Pioneer Press.

The Anoka County Sheriff’s Office got a search warrant and found a camera, several thumb drives and a computer that contained nude images of the girl at Kennedy's house. Investigators also found Kennedy had more than 3,000 photos of child pornography and about 250 videos with child pornography, WCCO reports.
