A 19-year-old Atkinson man is facing felony pornography charges after allegedly videotaping illicit content of two female minors.

Donald L. Shaffer appeared in Holt County Court on Aug. 23 and waived his preliminary hearing. He was bound over to district court. 

He is being charged with enticement by electronic communication, a Class 4 felony, and producing visual depictions of sexually explicit conduct, a Class ID felony.

According to court documents Sgt. Mike Parks of the Holt County Sheriff’s Office receive a report from a mother that a male party was harassing her daughters, ages 12 and 17.

The mother allegedly asked Shaffer to leave her kids alone, but he would not. 

According to court documents Shaffer allegedly sent pornographic  images and videos to the 12-year-old victim and also asked for illicit photos and videos. 

Shaffer was arrested on July 24. His bond was set at 10 percent of $150,000. A pretrial has been set for Nov. 19 in Holt County District Court.
