Two Men Arrested in Separate Child Porn Cases

PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. - Two Panama City Beach men were arrested Tuesday in separate child pornography cases conducted by the Panama City Beach Police Department and the Bay County Sheriff's Office. 

"Within the last two weeks, the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children provided information to BCSO investigators about two subjects uploading child pornography to their personal e-mail accounts, in unrelated instances. These images included prepubescent children involved in sexual activity," Panama City Beach Police wrote in a news release. 

Investigators identified those two as Justin Hannah and Christopher Corliss and made contact with them Tuesday. 

Corliss and Hannah were interviewed and subsequently charged with possession of the sexual performance of a child. Corliss charged with 5 counts and Hannah charged with 35 counts, along with promoting the sexual performance of a child, and resisting an officer without violence.

"As always, Sheriff Tommy Ford and Chief Drew Whitman would like to remind anyone with information on the online sexual exploitation of children to contact their local law enforcement agency or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST, or via their online portal, at www.missingkids.com."
