Man appears in court on child porn, drug charges

ENID, Okla. — A man arrested last week on child pornography complaints was arraigned Thursday.

Jeremy Brink Schneider, 38, was arraigned on felony counts of distribution of child pornography, use of a computer to commit a felony and misdemeanor count possession of a controlled dangerous substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.

Schneider appeared before Special District Judge Brian Lovell via video from Garfield County Detention Facility.

Schneider told the judge his information on the charging documents was correct and he did not want the charges read aloud.

Schneider’s bond was set at $50,000 and he was ordered to return to court March 31 for a bond appearance.

According to an affidavit in the case, Schneider’s IP address was identified on an file-sharing network Jan. 16 sharing at least 12 files of know child pornography.

Enid Police Department Sgt. Dustin Albright connected to the IP address and was able to download three partial videos, but only one which he was able to view.

The video portrayed a prepubescent female performing oral sex on an adult male, according to the affidavit. The video lasted about seven seconds and featured a girl known as “Vicky.”

Albright obtained a search warrant Jan. 16 for the subscriber information for the IP address to the service provider.

On Feb. 6, Albright received the information from the account, which is located at 1630 S. Adams, Schneider’s address, according to the affidavit.

On Feb. 14, Albright and other officers served a search warrant at the address and made contact with Schneider’s brother, Gary.

Gary told police he believed his brother was the one downloading child pornography at the residence according to the affidavit.

He said Jeremy was the only one who used the computer in Jeremy’s room. He also said Jeremy used marijuana, according to the affidavit.

Officers went to McDonald’s and spoke with Schneider. Albright asked Schneider if he had any marijuana on him and he said he did, according to the affidavit.

Schneider pulled out a multi-colored dugout that Albright then seized.

Albright interviewed Schneider in his patrol car. During the interview Schneider admitted to downloading child pornography, according to the affidavit. He then verified his address, which matched the information provided by the Internet service provider.

Schneider told Albright he used search terms such as “teen porn”  and “Vicky.”

Schneider confirmed he had downloaded and viewed the files Albright listed in the affidavit as seen being shared by Schneider’s IP address. Schneider said he knew he was sharing the files containing child pornography with others via a peer-to-peer network, according to the affidavit.

Schneider told Albright he knew it was wrong to download the material and he would occasionally delete everything, according to the affidavit.

He said for the past two years he would search for, download and view files of child pornography on a weekly basis.

Schneider said he would feel bad about what he did and he would delete everything, according to the affidavit.

Albright tested the substance in the dugout, which was positive for THC, according to the affidavit. The metal pipe in the dugout also had a burnt residue with the odor of marijuana.

Schneider faces up to 10 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000 on the distribution charge and up to five years in prison and/or a $5,000 fine on the computer charge.

The misdemeanors are punishable by up to a year in county jail and/or a $1,000 fine.
