"Ice Cream Man" Busted for Child Pornography Crimes

Authorities have charged 63-year-old Alvin Lee Jessup, a popular ice cream man in the town Beckley, West Virginia, with a battery of child pornography charges.

Jessup faces two felony counts of possessing material with a minor involved in sexually explicit conduct as well as two counts of possessing child erotica. He might also face other counts, such as prostitution, invasion of privacy and third degree sexual assault.

Officer J.R. Quesenberry, who made the arrest, obtained a search warrant after authorities allegedly found video footage showing young girls engaged in sexual behavior. Prior to the bust, Jessup’s ice cream business had been shut down because the West Virginia Department of Health found “roaches, mold and mildew.”

In an ominous statement of clarification, officer Quesenberry told reporters “the Health Department’s initial reason for shutting him down was not the bugs. The bugs were a factor, but there were several things that Mr. Jessup done in these videos and then put his hands in the ice cream he was selling. That is the initial reason why he was shut down.”

Jessup had encountered run-ins with the law before. In 1991, police arrested him for third degree sexual assault, but those charges were dismissed. He is being held in a local jail on a bond of $150,000.

From the news descriptions of this case – in particular Officer Quesenberry’s ominous statements about what Jessup had been doing with the ice cream – the 63-year-old sounds almost like a cartoonish villain contrived by a Hollywood screenwriter.

News reports tend to sensationalize pornography arrests, because people generally have a very low tolerance for those who engage in cybercrimes and solicitation.

If you stand falsely accused of such charges, you might be horrified to think that many people in your life would think of you in similar terms -- as someone who might "touch themselves and put their hands in the ice cream."
