KANSAS CITY, Missouri — Prosecutors say a man gave sedative-laced ice cream to several young girls and filmed them in pornographic poses while they were unconscious.
James Phillips Edwards was charged Wednesday with advertising, possessing and attempting to distribute child pornography, The Kansas City Star reported.
Investigators say in court documents that computers seized from the 60-year-old Edwards' home contained pornographic images of at least eight girls. They say one video showed three girls being given drinks and ice cream before they are shown apparently unconscious.
Authorities say all of the girls have been found safe.
An attorney for Edwards, Travis Poindexter, told The Kansas City Star he could not comment on the charges.
