Labadie Man Charged With Furnishing Pornography to a Minor

A Labadie man is facing a charge of furnishing pornography to a minor in Franklin County.  Franklin County Prosecutors have charged 32-year old Thomas Abbott in the case.  His bond has been set at $20,000 dollars.  The charge stems from a report to the Franklin County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday regarding a minor allegedly receiving pornographic photographs and sexually explicit comments from Abbott through electronic means.  It was discovered after the minor's mother found the material on a cell phone.  The Sheriff's Office learned the suspect knew the victim through his volunteering in the Union School District, through other local organizations and social media.  Abbott allegedly had contact with the victim from November through February.  The investigation is ongoing.  Additionally, the Franklin County Sheriff's office encourages parents to have dialogue with their children regarding internet safety, especially through social media.  If anyone believes their child has had contact with Abbott in an inappropriate way, they should contact the Franklin County Sheriff's Office right away.
