Mississippi policeman charged for child porn on work computer

OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - An Ocean Springs police officer is now facing even more charges after investigators say they found child pornography on his police department issued computer.

Lieutenant Steven Futral was arrested at his home Monday night, and charged with one count of possession of child pornography. At the time, Jackson County Sheriff's deputies confiscated his home computer and a laptop used for work.

Futral now faces three additional charges of child pornography possession after images were discovered on his work computer.

"The City of Ocean Springs and the Police Department will continue to cooperate with the Jackson County Sheriff's Office in the recent arrest of Lt. Steve Futral and the on-going investigation," Ocean Springs Mayor Connie Moran said Wednesday in a statement.

"The City does have a policy that covers internet usage by employees while on duty. There will be a Special Call meeting tomorrow, Thursday night at 5:30 p.m. for further discussion on this matter. It is the highest priority of this administration to ensure our citizens receive the best public safety service possible."

Ocean Springs Police say they have concluded their internal investigation of Futral, and Chief Lionel Cothern will present the findings to the Board of Aldermen.

Futral has been suspended without pay from the Ocean Springs Police Department. If found guilty, he faces a minimum of five years and a maximum of 40 years in prison on each count.
