CADDO PARISH, La. (KTBS) - KTBS 3 News has learned that a local business owner is behind bars on possession of child porn charges.

Michael Nodes is currently being housed at the Caddo Correctional Center on 28 counts of pornography involving juveniles after a search warrant was executed at his Caddo Parish home by investigators with the Louisiana State Police Bureau of Investigations and U.S. Homeland Security Investigations.

The warrant was obtained in conjunction with an Operation Child Watch child pornography investigation. The investigation revealed that child pornography was being downloaded onto a computer at the residence.

Nodes, 56, is reportedly the CEO of Data Management Express and MSN Group, Inc.
If convicted, Nodes faces up to a $50,000 fine and from five to twenty years in prison without benefit of parole, probation, or suspension of sentence.

The mission of Operation Child Watch is to rescue children from the potential abuse of child predators by targeting those individuals with sexually explicit images and/or videos on their computers. This is an ongoing effort, in cooperation with other law enforcement agencies.
