HANCOCK COUNTY — The Greenfield man charged with 12 counts of child pornography after information from a national tip line led police to a computer in his home will not spend any time in jail following the acceptance of a plea agreement last week in Hancock County Circuit Court.
Scott A. Franklin, 52, Greenfield, was arrested in August, 2019 after the Fishers Police Department, working with the Hamilton County Metro Child Exploitation Task Force, investigated three CyberTipline reports from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Franklin was originally charged with 11 different Level 5 felony counts of possession of child pornography and one Level 6 felony count of possession of child pornography. The charges could have carried more than 60 years in prison.
The plea agreement however dismissed all 11 of the Level 5 felony counts of possession of child pornography and called for Franklin to admit guilt to a Level 6 felony possession of child pornography.
