Colton Lackey

Colten Wayne Lackey, 20, of Weatherford, who was arrested for indecency with a child by sexual contact on Oct. 3, has had seven counts of possession of child pornography added to his charge.

Lackey was arrested on Oct. 3 following a search warrant at a residence in the 5000 block of Upper Denton Road. Parker County Sheriff’s investigators said the case began in September when a reported resulted in the removal of four children from the residence by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services due to parental drug use, child neglect and poor living conditions.

“The conditions of the home were nothing short of disgraceful,” Parker County Sheriff Larry Fowler said in a previous release. “Without seeing it, you would not believe how truly bad it was.”

One of the children made an outcry while in foster care against Lackey of sexual abuse and child pornography.

Lackey’s cell phone was seized on Oct. 3 when he was arrested, according to the sheriff’s office, and a search warrant was obtained for Lackey’s electronic devices on Oct. 23 and executed. 

Investigators found 20 videos of child pornography on Lackey’s cell phone. The victims appear to be as young as 4 years old engaging in sexual acts with adults and other children, according to the warrant. 

Lackey was still in jail at the time of the discovery and was served while remaining incarcerated.

A bond for Lackey on the possession of child pornography charges, a third degree felony, has not been set at this time, but he is being held on a $50,000 bond for the indecency with a child charge.
