Pediatrician charged with child porn in Ga.

Posted:

COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - The FBI says a 41-year-old pediatrician has been arrested in Columbus and charged with the possession and receipt of child pornography.

Special Agent in Charge Brian D. Lamkin said Thursday that Yancy Craft, also known as Travis Mobley and formerly of Memphis, Tenn., was arrested by FBI agents.

Lamkin says Craft was arrested Thursday after coming to the attention of undercover officers on the internet as part of an interstate child pornography investigation.

The FBI says the investigation was initiated by the FBI Memphis Crimes Against Children Task Force but was transferred to the Columbus area when it was learned that Craft had relocated to that area for an imminent job placement.

He was scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate Thursday afternoon.
