New Kent man arrested on child porn charges

Marvin Turner Rideout III

NEW KENT, Va. (WTVR) – A New Kent County man facing several child pornography charges was arrested Wednesday at his work in Richmond.

New Kent County Sheriff’s Office Detective Lieutenant Joey McLaughlin said in a news release that 44-year-old Marvin Turner Rideout III was arrested on three counts of Distribution of Child Pornography and 40 counts of Possession of Child Pornography.

Additionally, McLaughlin said Rideout’s arrest came after an investigation by the New Kent Sheriff’s Office,  the Virginia Capitol Police and Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that started in September.

While executing a search warrant on Dec. 16, law enforcement took electronic storage devices to analyze for child porn from Rideout’s home, located off N. Courthouse Road in New Kent County.

A New Kent Circuit Court Grand Jury handed down indictments against Rideout on March 19.

Rideout is being held without bond at Henrico Jail East in New Kent County.

He is scheduled to appear in court on April 9.
