BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — On Friday, the United State Attorney’s Office District of Massachusetts announced that a Sutton man who's worked and performed magic shows in front of kids for more than 20 years, has been charged with being in possession of child pornography.
45-year-old Scott Jameson was arrested and appeared in court on Friday, where a judge ordered his release on a bond of $10,000 with certain conditions. Jameson was to turn in his passport and was barred from using the Internet without supervision. His next court date will be on Wednesday, October 26.
Jameson's arrest comes after a Cambodian Non-Governmental Organization called "Action Pour Les Enfants" (APLE) reported in February that the suspect had "possibly engaged in inappropriate behavior with minors in Cambodia." According to APLE, two pre-teen Cambodian boys also claimed that Jameson slept with them in their bed on more than one occasion— though they did not report any sort of sexual abuse.
U.S. authorities were notified that Jameson had left the country for Cambodia on August 28, and upon his return to the states on Wednesday, stopped him at Logan Airport. It was there that officials allegedly found over a hundred incriminating photos and a video of children among Jameson's belongings.
According to prosecutors, Jameson had stated he has worked as a magician for more than two decades, regularly performing at libraries and family events across New England.
Jameson was arrested on one count of Possession of Child Pornography, a charge that can carry up to a 20-year prison sentence, up to a lifetime of supervised release, and a fine of up to $250,000.
