Jermaine Durham Jr.

NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A Norfolk man is accused of using Instagram accounts to obtain sexually explicit images of minors.

Court paperwork shows Jermaine Durham Jr. was recently arrested and charged with production of child pornography, coercion and enticement of a minor, receipt of images of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct and access with intent to view images of minors engaging in sexually explicit content.

Authorities say Durham used two accounts to obtain the sexually graphic material, including images from an 8-year-old girl, last summer.

He would pose as an 11-year-old girl to solicit the children, authorities say. A detective was able to locate about 800 images of child pornography on an account linked to Durham’s email, court documents show.
