Perryton Police Officer Aaron Daugherty Arrested for Child Porn

Perryton Police Officer Aaron Daugherty was arrested by the Amarillo FBI on federal charges for transportation of child pornography yesterday and made his first appearance in federal court today according to a press release issued by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas. Officer Daugherty is accused of using the popular messaging app Kik to upload and share sexually explicit images of children. Acting U.S. Attorney Prerak Shah said “The Department of Justice will not tolerate anyone who uses the internet to prey on children for sexual gratification.” He also went on about how Officer Daugherty violated the trust placed in him by the public by preying on children online. The USAO press release went on to say “The videos and images allegedly depicted children as young as toddlers and infants engaged in sexually explicit conduct.”

The city of Perryton placed Daugherty on paid administrative leave immediately. We are not sure exactly where Daugherty is at the moment because the mainstream media has not reported which jail he was taken to and the feds have not released that information either. When people are busted by the feds they are either taken to a federal detention center or housed in a county jail under contract with the U.S. Marshals Service. Often those contracted jails are not in the county in which the person was busted, so he could be anywhere in Texas or possibly even a neighboring state.

We did a public records search for people named Aaron Daugherty in the state of Texas and found a record for a 35 year old Perryton resident named Aaron Bennett Daugherty. That age matches the age given by the USAO in their press release. We could find no other 35 year old men named Aaron Daugherty in that state. According to those records Aaron Bennett Daugherty’s last known residential address was 1910 Drake, Drive in Perryton, Texas. We are making that address available for his neighbors and anyone whose kids may have been in that area or might go there in the future. Please do not use that information for any unlawful purpose.
