A father-of-one from Texas has been charged with more than 3,000 counts related to possession of child pornography, as well as sexual assault of a child.

James Tumlinson, a 26-year-old plumber from Shepherd, was arrested on the night of February 28 and initially charged with a single felony count of continuous sexual assault of a child.

Following an investigation by the San Jacinto County Sheriff’s Office, Tumlinson was charged with a second count of continuous sexual assault of a child, 3,191 counts of possession of child pornography and seven charges of possession and promotion of child pornography.

Sheriff Greg Capers and Chief Dan Todd told the Houston Chronicle the case, which they characterized as ‘nasty’ and ‘grotesque,’ is the worst of its kind they have ever encountered.
