VALPARAISO — A Valparaiso couple has been arrested for allegedly producing child pornography. They are being tried in court in Texas, where they lived during the time of the crimes.
According to police documents, they received information that led them to believe the man and woman were producing child pornography.
The Indiana State Police Crimes Against Children Unit obtained a search warrant at the couple’s home in the 500 block of Elm Street in January.
