Man charged with Child Pornography


Union Coun­ty State’s Attor­ney Daniel Klinge­mann announced today that an arrest war­rant has been issued for Dmitriy Seregeye­vic Seleznev.  He is want­ed on five hun­dred thou­sand dol­lars ($500,000.00) bond.  Seleznev has been charged with one (1) count of Child Pornog­ra­phy, a Class X Felony, four (4) counts of Child Pornog­ra­phy, all Class 1 Felonies, two (2) counts of Inde­cent Solic­i­ta­tion of a Child, both Class 2 Felonies, two (2) counts of Trav­el­ing to Meet a Minor, both Class 3 Felonies, and two (2) counts of Groom­ing, both Class 4 Felonies.


Seleznev is a white male, with brown hair and blue eyes. He is approx­i­mate­ly 5 feet 10 inch­es tall and weighs approx­i­mate­ly 175 pounds. He is believed to be dri­ving a 2008 to 2010 black Cadil­lac pas­sen­ger car with tint­ed win­dows and an Ore­gon license plate. He is con­sid­ered armed and dan­ger­ous. Do not approach or make con­tact. If you have infor­ma­tion please call the Jones­boro Police Depart­ment at (618) 833‑5500.


The Union Coun­ty State’s Attorney’s Office reminds the pub­lic that charges are not evi­dence of guilt.  A defen­dant is pre­sumed inno­cent and is enti­tled to a fair tri­al in which the gov­ern­ment has the bur­den of prov­ing guilt beyond a rea­son­able doubt.
